Right. The first part of the sentence was true before as well -- different
projects had their PO files hosted in different VCSs (the Docs project comes in
mind). It's just that now we (will) have a tool to bridge this gap and enable
both translators and developers to live happily ever after :)

Of course, nobody stops us (or someone from the team to be more specific) from
temporarily dumping all the PO files that interest the FLP in `/cvs/l10n` until
we deploy Transifex.

We're in a testing phase right now. Drop by #fedora-l10n if you'd like to help
test it in the next few days. ;-)
