I understand what is the freeze for and of course have no intention to use a
fait accompli while you're offline, so I can revert the change and beg
Packagers for including the corrected version off their own hand.
But you've clearly wrote about not yet commited change, while I commited it
tomorrow as early as it was possible, so reverting it would only increase the
inconsistency you've said. So I still don't know your decision...

It's MUCH better I think. Robert has made a great effort providing the
complete translation but unfortunatelly we have initially introduced some
ugly and unclear terms to a further investigation. All Polish documentation
will contain the corrected terms, so it's important to eliminate the ugly
ones from the LTS version.
Believe me I wouldn't raise this issue and make this mess if it hadn't really
critical! :) I know we all are busy enough.
