[Sugar-devel] Pootle not committing to Git?

I pointed that out on the localization list last week:


As a result of Pootle not pulling the updated POTs from the repository, Etoys translations will not be complete for today's release.

It appears someone needs to lend Sayamindu a hand, he has had little time available lately to deal with Pootle issues. CJL has been very helpful, but he said he cannot deal with the low-level issues.
