I can understand this reply as if the problem exists, which seems to
be the case, it is an upstream problem and not Xfce's. The correct
thing to do is wait for Transifex to fix it and then get the update. I
just took a look at issue #325 and sounds like it should be pretty
easy to fix. Let me talk to the Tx guys about it today.

Please don't feel that way as the system is working for the most part
really well. Now that we've started this thread we can get the right
parties engaged and fix it really quick. I completely understand your
frustration but believe me when I tell you that the Transifex guys do
keep our (us translators) best interests at heart.

Thanks again for getting this going. I'll do my best to relay
information from both ends via this mailing list so that everyone is
updated on the progress (and we will make progress I'm sure) of this
