Once the soft freeze arrives you must first get permission from the kde-i18n-
doc mailing list _before_ you commit any new strings, not just tell them 
after.  Only typo fixes and existing untranslated strings can be comitted 
without advance permission, but you must still cc the list when you do so.  

If you can, follow Christoph's advice and commit as many of the strings as 
possible before the freeze into the class where they are needed, that way you 
don't annoy the translators with too many excpetion requests.

The GUI tag only tells the documentation team (a different team entirely) that 
the UI has changed and they need to update the affected doco.
