I believe that investing in Pootle today is a waste of money, Weblate
already has a great amount of features and advantages, if you believe it's
a cosmetic change it would be better to develop a customized UI rather than
investing in a project which falls behind most of the recent innovation and
standards available to translators.

What was good about Pootle was that Dwayne and his team were very
focused on ease of use for translators. That was his priority, to
encourage translators to get involved in providing translations,
especially in minority languages for major software programs. He gave me
a lot of encouragement and helped me to transfer to Pootle from the
awful setup Mozilla had at the time.

It's a big loss not to have Pootle being developed and a bigger loss
that the ideas have been lost - anyone seen an easy translatiors guide
to Weblate - ?  It's all admin stuff.

Where did you see that suggestion to develop a new system? I wrote that
we share forces with other open source projects using or migrating to
Weblate and Michal is part of the discussion.

Sharing forces is very important. Also Weblate seems to be a very good

But I wonder, and this is OT: what about sharing or adding forces to
develop and maintain Pootle? Could Pootle be integrated in the TDF
process, or be part of a joint venture, for example, between open
source entities like TDF, KDE, OpenSuse, etc.?

Sorry for the OT, IMHO it's a pity leaving a so good and easy-to-use
tool :)
