F10 Schedule Problem for Translators

Hi FESCO and Rel-eng,

Just passing along a message.

They pointed out during their meeting and here on f-d-l that the feature 
freeze and string freeze dates are the same day.  This is problematic 
for them because it leaves no time for package maintainers rebuild with 
translations.  They seem a bit upset about this happening again.

Is there is anything we can do to help out the translators?

Hi devel team

I am Noriko Mizumoto, Fedora Japanese translator of Fedora Localization

Recently I've learnt that the F10 schedule has been delayed three weeks
with some reason. And I believe that this must be a great chance to ask
you to have a little more adjustment on the schedule, which we've been
asking for long but never happened.

Currently 'Feature freeze' and 'String freeze' are same day. This makes
no room for translators to work. If we could have the string freeze 5
days before the feature freeze, all translators would be happy to
complete their work.

It would be much appreciated if you could once consider this matter.

Thank you for listening to the end.
