Unfortunately no. Or yes, it would be technically possible, but we've
just finished moving away from hosting any "loose" pot and po files from
external projects in GNOME CVS.

The reason for this is that it always ended up being a horribly
unmaintained mess, with the manual syncing with upstream failing in both
directions in the end, and thus lots of problems and annoyance both for
translators and developers when working on, using, and including already
obsolete stuff.

So we decided that the GNOME Translation Project (GTP) should really
only translate what really uses GNOME CVS. Everything else is better
handled by another translation project, such as the Translation Project

Thus, if you feel that you do not want to use GNOME CVS, I strongly
recommend using the TP instead to help translators. You can read more
about the reasons for that on
