indeed a huge step forward, perfect.

Based on my experience in the past the problems with mismatched tags in
the help files (that can break the build) I would not commit the changes
from Pootle directly. I don't know how we can address this in a good
way. Maybe do a weekly update and solve all potential problems.

I will build it on MacOS...
