I feel having old versions of LO in pootle is beneficial for Marathi Locale.

The old versions should stay then.

@Kruno - What I want to ask is how can the translations of strings get outdated ? Do you mean to 
say better translations are possible for the said strings ?

Don't know for others, but it seams to me that there's a lot to correct even when translation of particular version is done. It's easier to me to suggest better translation if I'm looking at live translated user interface then some string in Pootle :)

We sometimes change all occurrences of one string for particular _context_ if we see it's not fitting right when we actually using translated user interface. Not often, but sometimes. On the other hand, we often change only one occurrence of a string if it's not fitting right to a context.

So old translations tend to get outdated rather quickly. It's not that all is outdated, but we make corrections which are really making difference (I believe so).

If so, in that case also it would be good to check what translations were done by previous 
translators. If not, what is the other trouble ? I am curious to know the problem.

If beneficial for you, older version should stay and my suggestion should be ignored. There is no problem at all and didn't wanted to present it as one, seamed like a practical suggestion to me.

  Hi Mihovil

For Portuguese you can remove 4.x projects for sure. We won´t touch it

I see other languages have same projects also, so not sure if you can
remove just ours (HR).
But since 4.3 / 4.4 / 5.0 aren't used any more I think it's safe to remove
it for everyone?

Best regards,

I wonder if it's possible to remove old LO versions from Pootle for
Croatian. We still have 4.3 and 4.4 so Pootle is suggesting translations
from this projects as well but those suggestions are often outdated or
wrong and seeing them in suggestion filed can be quite confusing and

(And how helpful translation from 4.3 can be for translating master when
everything from 4.3 already is in master, and we are just being suggested
something we corrected)
