It is always better than without any translations ;) Of course we need some time
to update translations, that's why you should create a pre-release tarball
PACKAGE VERSION scheduled release, that's an acceptable time frame for us. Maybe
to roll bugfix releases occasionally is also helpful, when new translations have
been arrived in the meantime.

OK, once the TP module has been created I get informed by the TP robot anyway.

That's your preference, of course. But make sure the translated man page
versions to ship with the released tarball, this makes it somewhat easier for
distribution packagers. And please screw up the threshold for acceptable
translations to 80% again (by dropping the -k switch from po4a-translate), it
would be annoying for the readers to get a fifty-fifty translated manual.
