I wanted also finish my translations, but TX from 10 attempt 8 times
just answers only that the file are unreachable. If I would like to
have the latest POT files, it's just impossible.... I have
successfully uploaded several of my trranslations through TX, but it
took LOOONG time till the UI answered that somekind of error happened
and apologized.... BTW - if TX doesn't see the POT files - through git
I could access them?
