Good question. Which module/language combination are you referring to
in particular?

I've added the question/answer to our FAQ


==== Entry for this language is not present in (ALL_)LINGUAS file
(warning) (#missing-from-linguas) ====

Some maintainers use some special files (po/LINGUAS, po/Makefile), to
identify which languages are ready for shipping (for example, they
have translations > 80% completeness). When these files are located in
the VCS, the statistics interface tries to find the particular
language in that file, and if it doesn't find it, it produces a
warning for the translator, since she might want to add her language
in po/LINGUAS or in the appropriate variable in the Makefile.

If the module ships by default all languages but the warning still
shows up, it can be safely ignored.
