I would be reorganizing the PO files once 8.2 is out (I don't want to
create much confusion now :-). XO Core and XO Bundled was a somewhat
random organization, and I guess this will be a much needed

As for hosting translations from sugarlabs.org - I would really try to
avoid a migration _at present_. We use a pretty complicated set up
internally (a pretty convoluted symlinking scheme, customized version
of Pootle), and also there are certain aspects of Pootle which need to
be handled manually atm (eg: PO file merging, resetting forgotten
password for users). Right now migration would take up too much man
hours IMHO. I expect some of the issues to go away with time, and we
might definitely revisit the migration plans sometime in the future,
but for now, I would suggest that it would be a good idea to stick to
whatever is running at dev.laptop.org.
