Martin, thanks for your contribution.  I'm hoping Mark can import  
your language for 2.1.10.  I'm also wondering whether we can get the  
Hebrew translation into 2.1.10.

Here's something I've been thinking about, and I'd like to know what  
you folks think about this.

Short of using a translation service such as Rosetta or Pootle, how  
can we make translations easier to add and update?  What if all  
translators were to use Bazaar branches of the 2.1 tree to update and  
add new translations to?  Then all we (i.e. core developers) would  
need to do would be to merge your branch to test the changes.  It  
would make it easier for you because your translation branch could be  
easily kept up-to-date with the official 2.1 branch, and it would be  
easier for us to merge in your changes.

Is this a crazy idea or a good one?  It should be fairly easy to  
implement both for you all and for us.  If anybody has any questions  
about Bazaar, of course, we're here to help.

If you like this idea, I'd be happy to create a Launchpad team that  
you could join and publish branches to, although it would /not/ be  
required to use this.  In other words, you could use any Bazaar  
branch hosting service to publish your i18n branches, even one you  
hosted yourself.  The only thing I'd request is that we update the  
wiki page


to include the location of the branch.  The really cool thing is that  
we could write a script to automatically scrape that page and pull  
your updates whenever we're about to cut a new release.

Martin, how would you like to be the test subject on this one? :)
