[Openstack-i18n] Translations for release notes in Mitaka? Perhaps NO

Thanks Kato and Andreas for clarification.

In my local testing, POT file generation and translated document generation work
though some minor improvements are needed. I don't see blocking issues so far.
So I think what we need to do are:
* Automatic generation of POT files (granularity of POT files needs to
be discussed. In my understanding, all release notes are generated
from the master branch.)
* How and where to publish translated release notes
* Where to have locale files in each project tree
* Infra script improvements of translation imports
  (As a project core reviewer, we don't want to have two zanata
translation imports
   for normal translations and release note translations)
