Having pushed the (guix transformations) patch¹, which also updates the
manual and thus requires yet some more translation work, I think I don’t
have any serious changes to make and I’d be happy to branch now.  WDYT?

There are a couple of pending issues, notably regarding locales in GRUB,
but nothing big hopefully, and nothing that changes the manual and
strings I believe.


Tuesday 6th is approaching very fast and probably we’re be a bit behind
schedule, we’ll see.
