They're supposed to be.  Unfortunately, anaconda is "special" in how its
translations are handled which sometimes leads to bogons and things not
matching up and the like.  The problems with the manual process that is
anaconda translations...  I could probably write a nice paper on why
it's bad to try to split source and translations based on it ;)

I usually push it when I update it, I just managed to not commit or copy
or something last time.  For a while it was on my todo list to automate
the process a bit.  But with Fedora and the ability to be more open
about release stuff in advance, I've switched instead to the plan of
"push anaconda CVS to be public".  I just need to finish getting a few
things in order before I can do that.

There are only a very very small number of things that are split like
this at this point.  And most are for hystorical reasons that will
slowly migrate over.  So I'm not sure how much it's worth putting effort
into setting up the automation at this point. 


PS Didn't get to cleaning up the anaconda stuff tonight...  I will take
care of it first thing in the morning.
