If it is only i18n translations util-linux developers are waiting, I
believe it would be better to start using their latest -dev snapshot, or
get one (git, svn, etc) and update to it, immediately. Before our
-stable LFS, is released, during -rc1, change to 2.26. This would give
more time for everybody to test it.
