8 % only for two specific files - and those files don't exist in this
form anymore...

We agreed some time ago (a year or two?) that as "release criteria" we
have 60 % as minimum for translationed - and so we removed some files
manually prior to releases that had low translation rate.

This time I didn't want to check all repositories again, so looked at a
different way.

Initially, I didn't want to hardcode the 60 % value into the scripts out
of fear of a jo-jo effect, specially for smaller files: A couple of
untranslated strings might easily make the percent go from 75 % to 60 %
- and that's why we had 20 % initially. Seeing how it worked over time,
I slowly raised the values while monitoring the effect in the daily imports.

So, should we keep it at 40 % for the scripts?

Btw. let's document at one place only - on docs.o.o,
