Looking at the comps translation statistics, more than 25 languages
will drop to 99%. This will probably make equal number of people
download the POs again, translate, and commit back.

Here's an idea. LXDE's description is quite similar to the XFCE one:

+    <_name>LXDE</_name>
 +   <_description>Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment.</_description>
    <_name>XFCE</_name>
    <_description>A lightweight desktop environment that works well on
low end machines.</_description>

How about using XFCE's description for this release to avoid breaking
the freeze? If you rebuild the PO files, the translation completeness
shouldn't change.

In future releases, please make sure to keep in line with the
deadlines and have all strings ready before the freeze.

If you have any comments on why this happened and how we can make sure
it won't happen in the future, please comment in. If we need a
different string freeze date or string freeze policy for comps, and I
mean *really* need it, we could maybe discuss this idea for the next
release.
