That's up to the translators. We don't force them to translate every
change we make to the docs. If they want, they can wait a while until
Simon tells us that the docs are (almost) finished for the 1.5 release.

But that has nothing to do with the changes in the build system. I doubt
that a lot of translators build the docs themselves.

I'm still having problems with the pdf docs though: the images don't get
resized properly to fit the page width - some of the images are way too
big to fit on a page.
