Since such cases are
(1) trivial in terms of risk (in this case an incorrect translation), with no 
functional effect on other packages, and
(2) correct esthetically negative problems for the users affected (in this case 
german-language users of the package in question)

it seems most appropriate to
(1) have a minimal QA for the change, and
(2) push the package with a low (lowest) priority

That way, we don't (significantly) impact the build system, and we don't leave 
users with up to 9 months of (minor) dysfunction.
