One first small step would be to somewhat generate a list of i18n update dates 
for each of the packages on a release. 

I understand that a package won't be regenerated just because I commited an 
update to a translation (in the betas, for the final release there should be 
a "Ok, day x all packages will be regenerated even if otherwise necessary 
just to include translation").

But at least I could when testing a beta look at CVS history and notice that 
at the day/hour of that last i18n fetch the package was 100% translated and 
any problem must be in the package. And I think this process is not as simple 
as "look at the build date of the RPM".

Anyway Paul, I do think you are doing a good job overall.
