Improving translation status reporting

Registered by David Planella on 2009-11-05

The purpose of this specification is to provide better translation status reporting at the distro level in a resource external to Launchpad Translations.

The main goals are:

 * Ubuntu translators, users and customers have an overview of the overall status of translation of the distro for a given language
 * Translations which need work done are easily identified
