Daniel mentioned system-config-network as an example.  Maybe it's just
me, but I don't see any kind of a Romanian translation file for
system-config-network in either the final release, or test4.

It is worth noting that the most recent PO-Revision-Date for any
translation in the system-config-network package is from beginning of
October 2006.  Anyone can find this out simply by saying:

$ locate system-config-network.mo | xargs -n1 msgunfmt | grep
PO-Revision | sort

In the translation CVS, however, there are 24 files that have a
PO-Revision-Date which is between October 2006 and the translation
freeze date in April 2007.

So, anyone having worked on system-config-network translation after 2nd
October 2006 has more or less wasted his/her time as far as the F7
release is concerned.
