One thing to note on the final date.

The week of Sep 26 (- Oct 1) is the final release candidate week.
The previous mail said Oct 1 is the deadline, but most OpenStack projects
will release the next RC in the middle of the week.

I would suggest to finish translations by Sep 27 0600UTC if possible.
0600UTC is the time of the daily translation import.

priorities are as the followings:

> - Dashboard Authorization Page (High)
> - Trove Dashboard (Medium)
> - Sahara Dashboard (Medium)
> - Murano Dashboard (Low)
> - Magnum UI (Low)
> - Designate Dashboard (Low)
> Note that recently, stable-newton version was created in translate.o.o.
> Please translate to *stable-newton* branch, not master branch (exception:
releasenotes should be translated on master branch).

translation, and then translate Horizon related projects.
