I wonder if those translation intervals are a good tradeoff for the release 
notes. Release notes often contain important last-minute information, so having 
the latest information is crucial. So I think having as up-to-date information 
as possible in English would be better overall than having lagging information 
in N languages. IIRC, there were a few pretty important release note entries 
which weren't allowed on the media because a freeze for translation was in 
place.

(And before you file me off as yet another English-speaking bigot, I'll note 
that my mother tongue is _NOT_ English.)
