Thanks Simos for taking the time to evaluate such an infrastructure for
However I doubt the relative complexity implied by your solution is
worth the trouble. I see basically two use cases:

1. The non-technical coordinator, who would like the simplest
infrastructure to commit his translation files.

-> In this case, an auto-commit feature integrated in damned-lies is the
best solution. No (D)VCS knowledge is required for him. FYI I've already
tested a prototype which can do this in the testbed git infrastructure.

2. The geek coordinator who like to have the most control on what he's
doing and how he do it.

-> IMHO, this one won't mind checking out entire git modules. This is
not very much different than the current situation.
