There is a difference between using gettext in an activity and having the
PO files associated with the activity on the Pootle server. The former is a
unilateral intervention by the activity developer. The latter requires
intervention by the i18n team. That intervention is triggered by a request
through the Trac system. It is independent of whether an activity is in
Fructose, Honey, etc. (although those designations are typically assigned
as a result of the intervention.)
