Question about import of upstream translation of Gnome


This is a question about the process of importing upstream

I'm a member of the team translating Ubuntu into Catalan, and I have
been approached by the upstream coordinator of the Catalan translation
of Gnome, asking me when and how are the translations imported for the
upcoming release of Ubuntu 17.10. I've seen the milestones in the
Artful release schedule, but it is not clear to me how it works. Right
now there are a lot of untranslated strings for the Gnome packages in
Launchpad, but the upstream translation is almost completely translated.

Are these upstream Gnome translations going to be imported automatically
into the upcoming release?

What about Gnome applications like rhythmbox, evolution, etc? Are the
upstream translations imported automatically? What about the,
possibly, conflicting translations done directly in Launchpad for
these packages? Are they overwritten by the upstream translations or
do we have to do something to give priority to upstream translations? 

Thanks in advance,
