Hi James,
I doubt if translators need further instructions. The one created worked 
so far for F12 internally. But this is just incomplete and need a help 
to improve. Once translators know how to get gui, they know what they 
want to see or check.
The idea I draw in my mind is that one wiki page to be created per 
release, as packages to test may increase/decrease. This is just idea 
and can be improved in anyway.

There are two goals for this review process. One is to have a chance to 
review own work of translation in GUI and check the quality. Second is 
to check if latest translation done reflected in the package. In short 
frame of one week, we filed loads of bugs last time for second goal. 
Those bugs push the thing forwards. Honestly I like to avoid to create 
too much wiki pages specially in that period. But I am happy to create 
any page required.

What I am really looking for is "nightly compose of 2010-03-05" 
available during 2010-03-08 to 2010-03-16 from QA team. With separate 
thread, yet installation media request comes up for reviewing.

Thanks a lot
