In gnome-packagekit's case the upstream maintainer and the Fedora
package maintainer are the same person, Richard Hughes. The updated
translations are going into the Fedora packages, that's not the problem

Something is going wrong in the gnome-packagekit build process, which is
causing the .desktop files to be left without translations
intermittently. This varies between builds and architectures. I've filed
a bug: <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=557082>. I even sent
an email to the devel list and Kevin Kofler suggested disabling parallel
build in the .spec file, in case this is some sort of a race condition.
I talked to Richard about this on IRC, it's on his todo list, but a
provenpackager (which I'm not) could also do this change.

This is not fixed in Fedora 13. At some point I guess we were lucky
enough to have all .desktop files translated, but then a subsequent
build had some translations missing again.
