That's a fair point, but let me explain a bit more.

The problem with waiting is that the dependency freeze is on July 8 and 
5.84.0 is planned to be released on July 10 (Maybe there's a lesson to be 
learned about scheduling future Gear releases).

The problem with skipping is that translated docs are installed via 
kdoctools_install(po), which magically installs everything found in 
po/<language>/docbook/index.docbook. So it's all or nothing if we don't 
want to add manual kdoctools_create_handbook calls, which isn't nicely 
maintainable because docs come from SVN.
Of course I can manually edit the tarball, like I just did for 21.04.1, but 
I'd like to keep that to a minimum and don't look forward to having to do 
that for 21.04.3, 21.07.{80,90} and 21.08.1-3.
