I'm already a user of transifex.com and find this a great idea. Just please
notify about languages that didn't pass in the "msgfmt --check" and 80% (I
would like to know, If my lang was in this list).

>> Hi,
>> I'm considering moving away from our private transifex installation
>> and moving everything to transifex.com. Beside the fact that there are
>> no updates for the version we use, the new interface looks much better
>> 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.
>> Nick
