[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] PRISM, government surveillance, and Wikimedia: Request for community feedback

I'm a bit lost here now that I've read that translation notice more 
carefully — are you really saying you want to have this post translated 
into German, French, Spanish and Japanese by Tuesday, June 18, and then 
for the local communities to comment on it by Friday, June 21?

There is just no way that this can scale in this world.

FYI, I posted a message asking for translations at 
and I'm sure that our amazing volunteer translators can get it 
translated into those four languages (and more) by noon on Sunday (PST).

(And again—doing this kind of things on a Friday is a Very Bad Idea[TM].)
