Busy recovering from long week-end. Will look at these later.

The best is to write to translators at videolan.org . You don't need to
subscribe but it speeds up thing because it avoid moderation.

You can also write to vlc-devel at videolan.org if it's very technical.

I (or someone else) should committhem this week. That will activate them
automatically for Linux. For Win and Mac we usually activate them only
if a majority of the "normal" GUI is translated. If you selcted the
strings for vlc_mini correctly it should be ok

Then we need a release: we reached the point in the 1.1.x branch where
we only release if we accumulated anough bug fixes or if someone
discover a securit issue. That makes date difficult to predict.

Thanks for your work
