I want to review your stuff.  But I can't properly load your snapshot
into fresh dev image from inbox and emergency evaluator was showed.  I
suspect order of loading was wrong.  Could you show the correct order
of loading packages?

nice-to-have feature with low priority that we might want to work on
after work of splitting translation will be completed.
