I do. My apologies to all translators, I've been there to follow the
release notes integration and was finally told that an announce would
be done in the mailing list, but didn't notice that it was not done.

It refers to the package which should be embedded in the iso file,
that's why the deadline was important.

In fact my issue is coming from the po file, there should be a missing
tag in a string, but msgmerge didn't help. Gonna see later on.

Both teams were created, hence tx push was working. But yeah, it could helps.

This email was also in order to see if some translators could join the
docs team.
This doc only need to be pushed in transifex.net, and to be built
frequently. (I don't know the process, every book maintainer has to
built its own book?).
It doesn't need to be updated to the GNOME 3 environment (nor has been
other guides pushed to transifex.net).

I understand that learning how to use the new transifex.net could
takes time (I still see developers who didn't notice major changes).

So far, hard work has been done, thank you guys!
