I look at it but it was not on mantis and I'm on the tweak mailing-list.

But if I follow your usual rant "us stupid harvesters do not  
understand what are package maintainers", we
could not move anything to the graphics package either because you  
are the maintainer of it.

So instead of ranting on our stupid practices, if you could admit  
that a bit of communication and synchronization
are necessary in the process and that with the merge mechanism of MC  
we can publish items in a package and that the
maintainer of the package can merge it back (and possibly reject the  
changes) because else we are stuck.

So now concretely how do we proceed for this changes?
Because you could have done it also, published two new versions of  
the packages and notify us.
I do not know who is maintaining the package multilangual. So we can  
do it if the code works because we are in ReleaseCandidate
status and this is taking far too much time so we could also postpone  
it to 3.10.
