There are other people on our team better qualified for that kind of 
review.  But it needs access to the server to evaluate. And no I doubt 
any of us are commiters.

Not sure I understand what you mean. If you mean pulled off the old 
server and onto the new I don't know if that server even exists, we 
don't have access to it anymore.

One change I would recommend is to have PO files stored in SVN and make 
creation of SDF files a build time event.

My biggest concern as a localiser would be the sharing of translation 
resources between LibO and AOO.
