For all my projects I stopped accepting Tx data when they stopped
providing properly attributed git commits, and started to supply us with
all translation updates in a single commit instead. We need (and in fact
every Open Source project should require) proper attribution for the
patches we merge into our projects, and that means that commits are
properly split up. As long as they aren't I will not turn on again Tx
for any of my projects, neither the ones listed above, nor the new stuff
we have been working on, such as systemd.

I have not been following development of Tx closely, so maybe there's
now some toolset available to convert the combined translation updates
as individual git commits. Is there?

I mean, I totally like the idea of Tx, I just dont think that the
"all-updates-in-one-commit" strategy can ever work for Open Source
projects, and hence we are not using it.
