By 21-Oct, translators are quite busy for Software translation.
More time can be spent for GA than PR.
Is any chance to translate IG under Launch phase?

Translatable PO files are not necessarily becoming available in order, 
but can be available soon as the authors finalize. Like docs team can 
drop the bombs of various documents for trans team. Each language team 
will schedule how to assign the resource to catch as many bombs as 
possible. Red Hat used to use the word 'drop' [1] internally so that I 
use here that is all.

As far as "Translate xxx" date is pointing the earliest PO files 
available date, that is fine.

[1] docs team finalize certain portion of his/her document by this date 
and make available to trans team.
