I am aware of that and am glad that you follow this approach.  I am 
convinced that among a lot of other improvements, we could  make the 
localization process a lot faster by
a) using make (dmake or GNU make) for controlling what to do when and
b) by integrating it into the build process to update the pootle data 
from time to time.

Conversion of Apache OpenOffice from dmake to gbuild is going very slow 
at the moment.  I am afraid that you will have work with the current 
build process.  But I am willing to help.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  And I will think about FOSDEM.

That is good to know.  Maybe after ApacheCon.
