yeah.. it was mentioned and got lost in the noise I guess. or maybe it was
that the po files are staying in svn for however long the translators stay
in any case, we have pre-commit hooks and they're important and the
guys said they'll make it possible to add them.
Git offers many benefits to translators too. Now ordinary translators do not
have any commit access at all
and they send their translations to maintainer and maintainer uploads large
commits that are hard to review.
With git it is possible to use workflow where every translator can commit to
some git repository and later translation maintainer pushes translations
into main repo. This workflow allows better review of translations by
Yea I agree, that makes a lot of sense, but given that translators had
more issues with the cvs->svn transition (according to conventional
wisdom) I really like the idea of translators moving or not moving to
Git on their own schedule and not one imposed by the likes of us.
