Can't we avoid having two branches and just use HEAD ?  My hope
would be that libxklavier could filter elements that the server does
not know about.  We've already playing fast and loose with using the
same file for and xserver that does not include it.  It seems easier
to just use HEAD, and avoid branching at all.  That will make
translation easier.

I don't claim it is.  Those are strings that people will see.  For
2.6 we will need  translation coverage on par with the rest of the
core gnome desktop.

This is an unrelated point.  I suspect we won't.  The only other
option would be to notice it is missing and disable the layout ui
entirely as if xkb was missing.

It's fine by me.  Put the fine in the gswitch-common module and mark
it for translation.  I'll contact the release and translation folk
to get it on the lists.

You could set up a cron job on your machine to update it.
or add some wget magic to the dist process to update it.
Neither should be terribly taxing.
