OK.  I've added a page to the wiki for AOO 3.4.1 tasks:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/AOO+3.4.1+Feature+Planning

So far I only have the Finnish translation on the list.  But feel free
to add any other must-have items for this maintenance release.  Maybe
some BZ issues that we should fix?   Other translations that will be
ready soon?

I'm suggesting a July release timeframe.  I don't think we can do it
much sooner.   We could take longer, of course, but I think we want to
establish a healthy heartbeat for the project of a release-per-quarter
or similar.   This is good for the project as well as the users.
