Really nice to see you following the discussion here. And I personally 
have to thank you
once more, for all your help over the years.

I installed and tried tx yesterday. But I failed to get what I was 
looking for. Obviously for
some error during setting up the environment. I might have succeeded, of 
course, with
a bit of more patience...

The thing is that when you're used with one tool and that's available, 
you tend to neglect
the others, especially when they give you troubles. My knowledge of git 
is rudimentary,
but a "git clone" will fetch a whole project, requesting just 4 seconds 
of my time,
leaving the rest to my translations. You need the URL? It gives you 3-4 
choices of that.
No need to figure out which one is the right one for tx. If you want 
just to download
anonymously, there you go, as it doesn't ask for any login details.
Committing my contribute later is easy as well.

It's not a big deal to make tx happy, but I believe we tend to focus 
more on translating...

In my humble opinion, providing a one-click way of getting a tarball of 
a whole directory
on Transifex would be a translator's dream come true.

Until then I'd be very grateful if you tell me the right URL to do that 
for a given project.

Best regards,
