I'm also confused by the "Translator" field. For the anaconda sv.po,
it's filled in with a name I've never heard of before. Even worse, this
person's e-mail address is a Danish one, and the domain part is a very
dirty word in Swedish...

Since 2000, I've been working from scratch on doing translations for Red
Hat and now Fedora, with the goal of keeping them high quality and 100%
for every release. We're currently two persons doing this work, and
we've managed to do exactly this for a *lot* of releases by this time.
We've recieved quite a lot of positive feedback about the quality, too.

Thus it's not really exciting to see that any random bozo can suddenly
take over control over a Swedish translation and fill in dirty words.
I'm not amused.
