Bug description:
  Currently, we export the cups template along the other .mo files in
  the language packs. This is however, not what the software expects,
  thus not useful at all.

  Cups expects the files to be in /usr/share/cups/locale/ll, in the file
  name format of cups_ll.po and in PO format[1]. The cups-common package
  ships the existing translations this way:

  So, what we should do is: 
  -stop distributing the .mo files
  -add cups to the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline page, and export translations before Maverick is out.

  [1]: seems that while cups uses the po format for translation, it does
  not use gettext for using the translations in the code, but reads
  directly the po files.
