Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-notifier

On a fresh installed system when internet access was not available during installation, a update-notifier window pops up and asks the user to run language-selector in order to install missing translation packages. Some string in this window come from the update-notifier package, but since the language-packs for the chosen language are not installed yet, some parts, like the 'Run this action now' button, are shown in English, while the rest of the window has been translated in the language-selector package.

Therefor, please include the translations from Launchpad directly into the package instead of relying on the language-packs to carry the translations.

Thanks for your help in triaging bugs. Please try not to change the status of bugs unless necessary, which generates a lot of unnecessary mail traffic and confuses everyone subscribed.

I'd recommend you to set the bug status to "In Progress" if you are really going to work on a fix for a particular issue, or if you know for certain that a particular person or team is going to work on it, at which point, the task should be assigned to whoever is working on it.

If we want this fixed, update-notifier should be added to the blacklist of pkgbinarymangler, as a first step.
Next step would be exporting the translations at nonlanguagepackfreeze and rebuilding the package.

Note that this change probably won't be effective yet. The blacklist in the buildds is apparently modified. I reported a month ago about this, you can use that URL to track the status.

Martin: thanks for the quick merge!
Unfortunately, this link says "Let me stop you right there", I suppose I should be a member of some elite group :(.

The package now contains the translations. Now we need a translation export & rebuild, but that should/can wait until nonlangpackfreeze.
