I can surely agree with that

O yes please...... (but I was the main cinbtributor for that on the 
"old" project for the Dutch language.)

But there was another reason. SUN/Oracle made the builds with about 8 
langiages EMBEDDED in them.
Yes, indeed one of them was Dutch.  :-)

Furthermore the proces was more and more set to be automated. Source 
strings were fed to POOTLE.
The translators for each language could then do their job in POOTLE and 
engineers from SUN/Oracle
pulled, when they could use them in htier proces, the strings from 
POOTLE and proces them towards the build.
Last minute translations could mostly be delivered on time for the final 
pull for releases

Since localization seemed to be always at the end of the proces 
translators had to work under duress.
This way the pressure was less at the end of the proces since strings 
were already for the biggest part already

If not using POOTLE you will have to think of a way to collect the 
tranlations to put them into the build.
Will APACHE build the same EMBEDDED builds as SUN/Oracle did or willl 
there only be languagepacks.
If the latter who will make them ?

No problem with that at all. Most of us just want to produce a nice 
working officesuite
