Re: [libreoffice-l10n] [ANNOUNCE] Branch libreoffice-4-0-1 created


Hi :)
I liked the announcement so please don't stop doing them!  Even though i didn't understand it this time i will have a better understanding of it next time. 

Now i have another question though!  If you know something specific has had no new strings between 1 branch and the next could it be brought forwards to the new branch en-masse in the same way?  Even if it was incomplete last time? 

Within a branch makes a LOT of sense and it's a huge relief to hear that is being done already!  :)
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)
