Exactly. For instance, IBM recently translated the new messages in  
10.1, and I am looking at having these translation contributed back  
to Derby. It shouldn't be a problem this time around, because there  
haven't been any changes to the translated messages by others.

In the future, though, there is a question of how not to stomp on  
somebody else's contribution if they provide a bug fix with  
translated messages, or a full set of translated messages. Whose  
translation is correct? How would one arbitrate the decision of who's  
message actually goes in?
