I can see both advantages and disadvantages to what you are proposing.
- As long as it is a language that is already supported (at least
partially) it will make the translator job slightly easier. The main
problem currently is not that it is difficult to add a new translation,
it is that it is undocumented. We are already asking them to do things
that are a lot more difficult to do than that (to use Trunk).
- It might encourage people to fill them in if they already exist.
- It only helps translators who work on a language that's already
supported, not translators who want to add support for a language which
is not already supported.
- It will definitely make it harder to know if this is a new or an
updated translation (poor Matt (skd5aner) will not be able to log this
correctly in the release notes).
If we do it I would suggest only doing it for currently maintained
Please let me know if you want my help if you want to go through with this.
Have a nice day!
