IMHO update details are at least as important as the summaries and
descriptions.

They're not translated, but that's the nature of current information.
There's just no time to translate it. In fact, I think our process of
freezing release notes early so they can get translated is harmful, I'd
rather have current information in English (which is only my 4th language!)
than old translated information.

Your English is just fine, in fact I didn't notice a single error in your
entire mail. Most if not all Fedora maintainers are writing decent to
flawless English.
