3.0.2 is already scheduled for June 17th, although I might slip it by a 
week. The reason for this early release is the number of security issues 
pointed out and the enormous rate of incoming bugreports, therefore I'd like 
to have a "clean" release. 

I can't judge about the KOffice work, but how much work is to do for 3.0.2 
from the translators/documentation side? The string changes should be 
minimal, and documentation work has been switched over to HEAD anyway as far 
as I know.

Okay with me. How many weeks of i18n string changes do you want ? A later 
release with more features probably requires more time to translate.
