Today, when creating a translation package all topics in the manual must be at the "ready state". This means we have to wait until every topic in the manual is finished, reviewed and approved before sending the content for translation. Any WIP topics in the manual will cause the package creation to error out.
We would like to be able to only send the topics at the ready state and have it ignore the WIP topics. Those can be sent at a later time when ready.
For large writing projects, this will allow us to begin translation work earlier instead of waiting until the manual is 100% finished.
