Well, part of the translation process must be upstream. We are
checking in the translation in the upstream git and hence we need to
respect the upstream schedule.
I would personally encourage Sayamindu to start working upstream
already, for example by providing docs on how to translate
Glucose/activities on the sugarlabs wiki and by matching the pootle
groups with Glucose/Fructose modules list.
Do you see any downside with that approach?
I'm *not* suggesting to host pootle on sugarlabs.org yet.
