I'd like to see something like:

- every day (during string freeze) generate a fresh .pot file for all
modules (already done by the status page thingy)
- diff it with yesterday's version and if any of the msgids have changed
post a notice of changed strings to a list
(string-freeze-break-list gnome org)?
- let translators subscribe to this list to get the news instead of
relying only on the status page for this

Would this work for the other translators?
