It's probably best to open a patch issue on SourceForge and attach  
your .po file to the patch.  Then send a link to that issue here.   
One of us will pull it into svn from there.

You can.  There's a few things you'll need to do to make your  
translations available to you (we should really make this much  
easier).  You'll have to add an entry for it in Defaults.py.in --  
just cargo cult it in from one of the other languages, changing the  
language code and charset as appropriate.

You'll need to add the directory structure until messages (and  
possibly templates too, if you've translated them) and then update  
the Makefile.in's to include Hebrew's language code.  Put your .po  
file in the right place, then re-run ./configure; make; make install.

Let us know if you get stuck anywhere.  I can probably try to pay  
attention to the #mailman channel on irc.freenode.net to walk you  
through it if you want.

Blech.  What version of Python are you using?  I would suggest 2.4.4  
and then you won't need those add-on codecs.
