There is a huge problem with old branches in whole GNOME. You can have the

How is this a problem exactly? Old branches are most probably not going to
see a release and translations brought to them would then never reach the
user. *That* would indeed be wasted work. On the rare occasion where you
know that a given old branch will have a release, you can still find it, as
you pointed out.

That's it. No releases, no new translations, no updates. Translation of master 
is a waste of time (?).

Translations and Damned lies are not a completionist game where the goal is
to have 100%, even on past releases. Old releases may not be fully
translated, and that is fine.

That's too bad. I've tried to complete GNOME translations (master and "stable" 
branches) through almost 1.5 years but just a quick glance on LP shows the 
discrepancy for the "old good applications" with "stable" branch with no new 
releases. With no regular release system (like KDE releases), translating 
these GNOME applications is just a waste of time.

Just my 2 cents.
