FWIW, Transifex is the solution for committing .po files. Translators
just upload the po file somewhere and everything else is magically done.
I'll be pushing for this in the next few months ;-)

Also, just a general comment: as a hacker who doesn't care a lot about
VCS, I find git still too difficult to learn. It's improving and maybe
it will get to the right point. Each time I use git, I have to check I'm
using the right command and I'm not sure I'm doing things right. I mean,
this is normal when switching VCS, but it's way worse with git than when
I tried bzr or when I switched to svn. git is too powerful. We need a
dumb wrapper for people like me.
