I really don't understand what is the problem with doing it "old-school"...
You use whatever translation tool you like, send your patches to the
software mantainer so EVERY packager from every distribution gets the
translation, and there is no rework....
If the people realy wants a web based translation tool, I should stick with
pootle (is that the name right?). I really like *ubuntu, but I'm starting to
think that their way of doing things in regards translation is a bit odd and
Just MHO....
