The Translation Project is a "free" project.  To join it, there's no
need to actually process the PO files via the so called "Translation
Project Robot" (TP Robot, for short).

But the list is there to discuss special translation problems; I've had
the feeling, you're looking for such a forum.

That's pretty good.  And exactly these issues are to be discussed at  (Of course, often it's better to do it than to perform
endless discussions).

I'm not sure whether we actually need a CVS for this purpose; I'm sure,
François would be helpful to host such an catalog at his server, too.
This catalog looks like a meta catalog (kind of a library, not specific
to a textdomain).
