No. The TP only supports (few) dedicated releases of each POT
file. Each POT file must have a unique version number.

This is by design; it simplifies life for translators and allows
better traceability.

I would advise against that. Translators should only get active when a
release of the package is near. It is a waste of time to continuously
update translations.

For external translations, we only need to maintain the fact that it
is external - we don't have a copy of the external translation.
