Hi Māris and all the others,

Looks like we reached a consensus. (Those who are only subscribed to
kde-frameworks-devel, please see in the KDE-i18n-doc mailing list more
replies for shipping all translations without filtering.)

Sorry, I totally missed the point about motivation for newcomers in
translation teams, even though I joined our translation team for the
same reason as Vít did and around the same 5-6 years ago :)
