Because I want/have to do

$ git push

Or can git check out only a single directory or file? I seriously don't
know, so don't take it as an offence.

I'm asking this because checking out anything other than $LANG.po and
Changelog, optionally LINGUAS is not really necessary for doing
translations. (CVS could do this! ;))

With SVN, we have to check out at least the po directory - not much more
 data, but still worse than CVS wrt to saving badwidth. Taking one more
step backwards and having to download an entire repo would be quite bad
in this regard - at least for those with limited bandwidth and until
Transifex saves them.
