Moving the translation deadline from 21/10 to 14/10

Hey guys.

As you probably already know, the schedule has two important dates for
translations: the *translation deadline* and the devel freeze. The
first is the date that we guarantee that translations submitted so far
will end up in the release. A packager (who maintainers a package
translated by the FLP, such as anaconda, system-config-*, etc) needs
to re-package between the two dates for the guaranteed translations to
end up in F10.

Currently the F10 schedule has translation deadline the same day as
the development freeze (FLP didn't provide the necessary input to
RelEng in time to fix this). This means that packagers only have a few
hours to repacakge.

I sent an email to FLSCo and it voted in favor of moving the
translation deadline from 21/10 to 14/10, so that packagers have 1
week to repackage. One less week for translating, but substantially
higher chances of those translations ending up in the release.  The
translation deadline is something that affects only translations, so I
think it can be moved it without affecting anyone but translators.

Awaiting for your OK before changing the schedule page, announcing on
fedora-trans-list, and -devel-list.
