Right now the 2.2 branch has 10 new or changed ("fuzzy") strings altogether 
compared to 2.2.5. I've just uploaded a translation template to 
http://www.gnucash.org/gnucash.pot but I'm unsure how many translators will 
actually listen to gnucash-devel. 10 new strings are still tolerable, though, 
which means the upcoming weekend should be fine for a release.

Thanks a lot!
