I think by "desktop translations" here Lukasz meant that we're no longer
going to use the desktop-specific language packs in favour of the much
smaller touch-specific ones.

As pitti mentioned in previous e-mails on the list, this will mean for some
packages to get their translations stripped and shipped in the language
packs instead. dialer-app was one of the first ones, so it's shipped
without translations today, but we're getting the language pack also today,
so probably at some point tomorrow or whenever the touch language packs are
uploaded, it should get them back.
