The problem is that we are only setup to handle two active branches for the translations. Currently 4.1 and 4.2, if we branch off 4.2, we need to setup a third branch for translations.

That said, I really think we should think about the 4.1.4 release, who are we actually going to do a pleasure with that release? 4.2 is around the corner and is so much better than a possible 4.1.4. Are  trunk bugfixes being backported to the branch currently and tested over there? I don't think a lot of developers are testing that branch anymore. Our users are probably best served with a rocking 4.2.  I'm not going to fight for this idea, it is just my opinion. Adventurous users can go to 4.2 beta1, stable users are already served with 4.1.3.

So, just in my personal opinion, we can drop 4.1.4 and spent our energy to 4.2.0.
