"About This Computer" and GDM strings

Hello L10n folks!

String freeze is coming and I'd like to have some strings translated.
However, I'm facing problems with two specific modules.

There is a "About This Computer" string in Fedora's gnome menu that is
not actually from gnome-system-monitor, gnome-menus or redhat-menus.
This a Fedora customization. There is a wiki page where this string was
translated [1]. I made some changes in the pt_BR translation during the
F10 translation cycle but it didn't get into the distribution. I guess
other languages also need to translate/update this string, but IMHO this
is not a good way to do this and I am not sure what component should I
file a bug against.

The other issue is about GDM. Probably due to downstream customizations
in Fedora and gdm rewrite, some strings are in English even if the
upstream is a 100% translated. The "Password" string is one example.
There is a bug filed for this [1] but it is almost one year old. I would
like to know if this is still only happening with pt_BR or other
languages too. This happened in F10 and is happening again in Rawhide
for us.
