I am very concerned to see pootle being updated the way it is: No
warning, no justification. It looks there is no process at all.

Translation is not a lesser job. It is the first impression for
LibreOffice users.

If it is poorly carried, LO and its community will be at risk, and a
complete food-chain will fall into pieces.

I had to translate >8000 words of lost help string because the
transations were not carefully caried from 4.1 to 4.2. OK, I have my bag
of tricks, but nevertheless it took me days to fix it, one by one.

Now I see more and more string showing up from nowhere in the last
minute. Some string are from QA tests... we don't need to translated QA
tests. LibreLogo was once a separated project, now it is inside SW, etc...

I am scared to death to loose years of work on a mismanaged pootle. I
have my backup but if I loose track of the job done I will take an
amount of time I don't have to fix.
