  2. At some point in the lifecycle, a documentation freeze is announced.
  3. Import job is run (eg from Hudson/Jenkins). (See script zanata_import_source.)
  4. Translators can begin translating at
  5. Draft builds are run nightly or more often (Jenkins?). (See script zanata_draft_build)
  6. If author changes any XML, go back to step 3.
  7. Translations declared "final"
  8. Documentation release build is run. (See script zanata_export_translations)
