As some translators on this list are aware, I've got a few packages
with unmerged translation bugs going back a long way.

I'd really like translators to be able to contribute translations
directly into my projects, as outlined here:

and from what I hear from another project where this is done[0] it
seems to work really well.

_However_ neither of the methods described above is suitable for me.

I don't want to change the project hosting to use Fedorahosted, and I
cannot allow ssh access to the hosting machines from anywhere in the

What would really work much better is if transifex could publish a
git[1] repository with a rebasable branch containing the translations
that I could pull.  I could track this branch automatically, and merge
the contents in just before a release (resolving any conflicts

An alternative would be to allow me to rsync the po/ directory (as is
done by[2]).

What do you think?
