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 it
seems to work really well.

What would really work much better is if transifex could publish a
git repository with a rebasable branch containing the translations
