Hmm. My guess is that the translations were packaged at a certain date/time and 
only a few early bird translations made it to the build. Perhaps we can make 
some noise and get this fixed for F-12.

So it certainly looks more like a problem with both 'packaging' and the 
existence of entries which were probably not 'marked for translation'. What I am 
thinking is that filing a bug against F-11 may not help here because in all 
probability it would be marked for fixing in 'rawhide' and it would mean that we 
have to wait for the versions for F-12 to roll out. :(

Any other thoughts here?
