That's true only for the way you manage the .po but not for the way that
we do it.

True, but for example, with GNOME releases, we freeze the code but some
strings change and the mantainer send an email to the mailing list
telling us that he/she has updated some strings. And sometimes they do
two or three changes for the same version, so we cannot use your version

I'm talking about 100% integration not cooperation. The cooperation is
really beautiful, but I don't think it could be possible we are not
talking about the cooperation between two teams we are talking about the
cooperation between 80 or even more teams... (40 from GNOME and 40 from
GNU). It's not a trivial task...
