Stephen pinged me on IRC about changes to man pages, in the package's

I had a look at them and, indeed, when rebuilding the package, the PO
files in doc/po4a/po are fuzzied. With po4a, this is not a so big deal
as fuzzy strings will be incorporated in the generated man pages, in

....which will post a call for *new* translations to debian-i18n

While you're at it, you can also get updates for the programs

-first call for updates only, with a short deadline (say 4 days)
-calls for new translations with a long deadline like 20 days
-in 5 days, upload the new version with fixed translations

-in 20 days, when the first upload will have entered testing, then
upload a new one with new translations and hope that it will make the
