I can see the request for i18n test, not l10n test.
As said before, sending request to devel-announcement is must for l10n
test. Otherwise package maintainers won't pick up, rebuild and push
their packages with latest translation. There is no request found in the
archive , therefore we can not expect any build containing latest
translation to test atm. Please notice that i18n test and l10n test are
different, and can be organized separately.
