But it's a waste of time if those strings are not in 2.6 anymore. You
should get the last 2.4 file and merge it with 2.6 and then translate
2.6

The fact is, if there are no more 2.4 releases from GNOME, Sarge will
not get those translation updates so that work will be lost. That's why
we should know first if new tar.gz will be released from the gnome-2-4
branches.
