We hope to have working repositories, at least for guinea pigs, within
two weeks :) Moving all the repositories over to git will of course
require time --- it's not the conversion that is the biggest problem,
but fixing the infrastructure and writing documentation.

One of my tasks for the migration to Git is to write a little bunch of
tutorials for various scenarios --- maintainers, contributors,
However, I'm not 100% sure about the workflows that translators tend to
use. Do people mostly use web tools (and what happens then --- does the
tool commit for them)? Or do they checkout a whole module and simply
commit to the .po files? Or do they checkout a *single* .po file and
then commit it back, or send patches to a language coordinator?
