First of all, thanks.  And second, to leave a clear statement about the
main point: I agree with your proposed time frame for the string freeze,
October 26th (freeze) to 29th (release).

Probably this context helps: I've already uploaded to TP the translation
for the manual, so I can compare the "old" pot (the one uploaded to TP)
with the "new" one (the one I generated today on my machine).

Nobody likes deadlines---at least not me, hehe---but I believe they can
be really useful sometimes. :-)

Yup, that's the main advantage of freezing: you can focus as much as
possible on the little and not so little details, like bug hunting.

I agree that a longer string freeze wouldn't a big difference, and even
may hurt.  At least the manual is a huge work that probably cannot be
done in weeks from scratch, so I'm not thinking about the string freeze
as "the time frame to perform the translation" but "a time frame to
check the translation already done and fix last minute issues/features".

Besides, sorry if the word 'tight' sounded as a complaint meaning
protest, if so it'd really be a complaint meaning grief for my schedule,
as I'm unable to dedicate much time on working days.

Happy hacking and translation too!
