hi all,

i'm very pleased with the amount of translation efforts beast has been
subject to so far.

however there's one issue that keeps popping up. that's missing .po files
in po-bse/. the beast module currently has a po/ directory for the GUI a
po-bse/ directory for the synthesis core and will get a po-plugins/ directory
in the next few months.

unfortunately, many translators are not looking at po-* directories and thus:
- miss out additional things that need translating
- add their language to ALL_LINGUAS in and by that cause builds
  to break if their language .po file is missing from po-* directories.

so for one, i'd like to remind every translator that beast has a po-bse/
directory, but for another i'd like to raise the question whether there's
anything package maintainers can do to remind translators of the existence
of additional po-*/ dirs automatically.
