Since we don't handle translation in a vast majority of packages ( as
they come from upstream ), that would be a upstream bug like any others
for a rpm packager.

And for the rest, well, the bug be it in documentation, translation, or
code must follow the same lifecycle, and imho, should be grouper
logically and we should not duplicate information everywhere, with
information being "version of the product/components".

It is not i18n goal to triage bugs. That would be duplication in term of
ressources, in term of setup, etc. And so if people want to sort bugs,
they can join the proper team. Doing otherwise would bring complexity
the setup for a relatively low gain IMHO.
