Negative press? Do you have a link?

Remember, we didn't drop anything.  For example, we had released no
translation of French 4.0 last week, because 4.0 was not done.   Now
that 4.0 is done and the translation is done, we can release both.
Does that mean we dropped French last week?  No it just means it was
not ready to release yet.

When the same conditions are met for other languages, we release them
as well.  So we're not dropping anything.  We're merely releasing the
translations that are done now rather than waiting longer for the ones
that are still in progress.

We did the exact same thing before with AOO 3.4.1.

I added a statement to the release notes explaining that more
translations are coming and telling how interested parties can
volunteer to help.  Is that good enough?
