Many thanks for those involved in this release preparation.

Just a quick note about translations. It is very discouraging to see the  
release dated with 2016 with translations dated back in 2014. Personally,  
I worked hard to update translation to the latest catalog from Zanata just  
to see it is not used. :'(

A tutorial on how to make releases from libguestfs team:



Push and pull from Zanata.


  zanata push
to push the latest POT files to Zanata. Then run:

which is a wrapper to pull the latest translated *.po files.

A script to pull translations:

set -e

echo zanata po pull
zanata po pull

# Remove PO files that have no translations in them.
for f in po/*.po do
     if ! grep -q '^msgstr "[^"]' $f; then
         echo rm $f
         rm $f

Libvirt team should either remove the translation infrastructure to not  
fool around Fedora translators or use the translations properly (as it  
does Ubuntu with its LP translations).

Thanks for your time on reading this.
