I have not been able to follow-up on this.
The Norwegian site is lacking sadly behind, not even promoting the newly released 3.4.1 :(
Any updates on best-practice for keeping translations in sync, other than what you described

Any of the other Norwegian translators want to give it a try?

the old homepage to /no/old and start a pure translation of the official home-page into Norwegian,
much like they have done for /es/. Then we can start filling in relevant national content
step by step.
