Rudi, I think the translators are mostly worried that the document as
a whole is large, not that the PO files themselves are large.

The Q I have is: Should we continue pushing the big release notes, or
should we consider either reducing their size or producing a compact
version which will be more easy to translate and probably more
compelling to our users as well, similar to eg. GNOME release notes?
