You are very kind to answer that a recent DNS outage, can stop all
translation work.
But what it seems, is that this project may need a test environment 
with more deep and long testing period before deploy an upgrade or a new
My point of view is that Fedora DL throw away all the benefit coming
from its association with Transifex, making the project, to be
continuosly at an apparently start phase.
Due to the lack of a locking system of the po file (like the old redhat
method), the crew waste their time translating already translated
strings, or filling the wiki or the mailing list of strange messages to
know, "who and when is work on what", constantly with the same doubt:
"Are the stats updated?", "I'm translating the right latest file or not?"
