The updated .po files are generally brought into Mercurial as the release
process is conducted, so generally this will happen either the day before or the
day of release.  In the case of 3.0.0, however, it's likely we'll pull
translations in when we announce a general string freeze, then again nearer to
the actual release.  For 3.0.0 I expect that we'll give a month-long string
freeze to give all translators time to revisit their translations and ensure
they're in great shape.  We have a few translators that pride themselves on 100%
completeness and the minimum practicable number of "fuzzy" translations.

We don't currently have a target for 3.0.0 release.  We haven't sent many
release notifications recently because very, very few of our recent releases
have had string changes.

Absolutely.  I feel we'll still need a small number of 2.10.x releases before
we're in a state to release even a beta for 3.0.0.  In fact, you should find
that majority of your work on 3.0.0 can be essentially copied wholesale for 2.10.x.
