the easier part is to provide the en-US language packs that we have
voted on and that were part of the snapshot builds. I still don't know
why I have left them out... Maybe I simply have overseen them because of
our stupid directory structure I have to copy en-US separately. But that
should be no excuse ;-) By the way I have copied them already on dist.
I will also work on some SDK release notes but I am not sure if I will
finish this before I go on vacation on Saturday. I have some other
things on my to-do list first.
