You could try the following commands:

$ wget http://carolina.mff.cuni.cz/~trmac/fedora-i18n/ta.html
(gets a language's html status page)

$ grep 'fedora/translate/.*pot' ta.html | \
sed 's!.*a href=".*fedora/translate/\([^"]*\)".*!\1!' > /tmp/pot.names

(picks the pot file names and writes to /tmp/pot.names)

$ cvs co -c > modules.lst

(gets the modules in cvs)

$ for line in `cat /tmp/pot.names`
key=`echo $line|awk -F/ '{print $1}'`;
(echo -n `grep ^po_$key modules.lst |awk '{print $NF}'`;
echo $line|sed 's![^/]*!!')>> /tmp/cvs_pots.txt ;

(generates the correct path for pot files to do cvs co)

$ cvs -z6 co `egrep -v '(comps|users|proc)' /tmp/cvs_pots.txt` \
comps-po/comps.pot \

(the actual cvs check-out. whew!!)

As has already been answered, try:

After copying the translated file as file as
you could do:
$ cvs add <your-two-letter-langcode>.po
$ cvs commit <your-two-letter-langcode>.po

I am yet to find an answer to this question.
Searched the RedHat website. No luck.
Could anyone on the list help ?
