Good idea! Transifex.com offers a fine solution.

> Hi,

> and it also does better upload checks because there are really a lot
> of problems in the translations (msgfmt --check is often not passed).
> In the current state I'm still experimenting with the scripts and
> fiddling with transifex.com, but a bit of a summary on how the
> migration will look and stuff will work:
> - For all projects I'll push the translations ONCE that pass the
> msgfmt check. If they don't, they will be removed from git and moved
> to a public location so a translator can fix them and upload them
> manually on transifex.com.
> - After that I'm going to cleanup the translations that are below 80%
> completion (remove them from the repository). They will be pulled in
> again after they will reach a higher level of completion.
> - A script will check for translation changes in the code, and push a
> new pot file to the transifex server (bit like it works now). This
> should also notify you guys for changes (the watches).
> - When a translation is updated on transifex.com it will be pushed to
> the git repo automatically. There will be a constrains here on a
> minimum completed percentage of 80% before they are added to the git
> repositories.
> - The script making the commits will also collect (extract
> Last-Translator) credits for the about dialog and website. All authors
> will be shown who made contributions in the last year.
> - translations.xfce.org will be taken offline and everybody needs to
> signup at transifex.com.
> I'll keep you posted on the progress and will let everybody know when
> the move if official. In the mean time if you have ideas, let me know.
