a couple of years ago I've helped improving the German online help
texts. It however has always been a nightmare to get corrections into it
by opening issues, describing the exact locations, discussing this with
Well, this has changed a lot since that time. Today it's normally enough
to file an issue, containing the help index, wrong and right text ...

Although translation is not directly done in source repository, it's
quite easy to contribute.
Only problem at OOo is, that the translations are integrated very late
in the release cycle. So although transaltions are fixed, we often see
then only short before RC phase in the product.
My question is whether the l10n stuff is now being made available
through a Git repository, that can be easily cloned and modified.
Even if not every author will get direct push rights to the master repo,
it should be much easier to automatically generate patches and send them
in or push stuff to an intermediate Git repo where a maintainer can
fetch it from.
I'm not in favour of using git directly. This is normally not the tool,
translators work with.
We currently focus on pootle. See
http://pootle.sunvirtuallab.com/ (current OOo setup)
http://stage1.services.openoffice.org/ (next version at OOo, we will
provide quite the same version)
for genereal info on pootle.
After all, we can use a git repository as backend for the pootle files,
but the process is more complex (needs to be to please translators ;) )
Anyway .. I'm open for discussion on how to handle the translations.
