Hi Gabor,

As I understand it, the officiel place for svn for Xfce is
svn.xfce.org and I don't think that Transifex is pointing to this! So
to synch the 2 repos a script has to be employed.

Using non officiel tools to maintain might not be adviseable. It will
create more issues than solutions.

No, Danish translation is nearly 100 % and compare this to Transifex
which shows far from 100%.

The officiel svn will be the one used for compiling packages. So I
think that will give you the answer.

Well you can check out only the po file directly from Xfce stats.

Well for now migration from svn to git is having priority and will be
done within nearest future.

Transifex or Danmed Lies might be better, but for now I think that
using the official repo will create less confusion.
But it might be a good suggestion for the future.

I'm afraid that Transifex is not synched properly with svn for Xfce
and that some of your work will not be used or demand extra work on
your side.
So one again I would advice you to use official Xfce repo as being the
one used for any new releases.
