Personally I'd have Because most of the people seem to assume that having Pootle (you can tell the same about Rosetta and similar tools) as interface to translators will force them to edit files through it....which is untrue. Pootle can very well be used only to retrieve/commit PO files which can be edited offline by whatever mean translators prefer. I think you can trust me when things are about working offline as *I* am mostly working offline when reading mail/translating/most of my activities....and I would really hate having to *edit* my PO files with Pootle..:) And even more, as said already, having our Pootle hooked on a git branch does not necessarily force people to use it to retrieve l10n material... What's poissibly confusing is that those people who will take time to insist using GIT directly are the very few who can indeed adapt to every method to retrieve material. Those are not my "target"....the target is more the teams that are limited in manpower...or skills...or both combined.
