We've now completed the translation and I've uploaded the "final" 0.23
patch to ticket 7914 (version 6 of the ALL_IN_ONE_patch). However, the
themestrings still haven't been updated in SVN, so there's still quite
a few untranslatable strings, even though we're only 10 days away from
the 0.23 release :(

What are the current plans in regard to the themestring update?

Can I help out by submitting a patch with the updated themestrings?

Since we've put _enormous_ efforts into this full translation of
mythtv (the patch is almost 2MB), it would really be sad if it didn't
make it into 0.23 or if it made it into 0.23 without all the new
