I don't know at all how things are going on for GNOME.  I have read
their wiki once about i18n, and for what I remember, you do svn
checkouts.  xdt-i18n does svn checkouts, and it tries to do this in a
efficient way: it doesn't download the whole source but only the .po

% xdt-i18n init xfce/trunk $HOME/i18n/xfce-trunk
% cd $HOME/i18n/xfce-trunk
% xdt-i18n stat <locale>

  where locale can be fr.po, de.po ...

will download the xfce core projects and display the number of
untranslated + fuzzy strings and the missing translations (No such file
or directory ;)).  There is a usage table in the wiki, I guess you saw
it.  So FWIW I think xdt-i18n is a pretty straight forward tool to
download xfce projects and translate them.  The svn diff outputs are
easy to apply afterwards on the whole projects at one time.

Enough said.  How is the foo-projects.org form going?  Can you start
your commits already?
