I would consider Pootle support basic good practice, not advanced.

I agree with others who said we need to get them involved in the community.
 That might actually make the certificate attractive to teachers.  If he
assigns a student to get a certificate from us the student will learn
valuable skills that he doesn't have to teach, and the project will be
pre-graded in a sense too.

I think MYOSA covers all the things we want the students to do: Git, Pootle,
icons, toolbars, etc.  I know that student projects have to be short, but
none of this stuff takes that much time.  Doing it right takes no longer
than doing it wrong.
