It is.  Messages change from time to time and new ones are added as well.
These generally aren't big changes.

They are exchangable, sort of.  The best thing for you to do is to work
from current cvs.  The differences will be big enough that patches may not
apply cleanly, and that isn't much fun.

There will be some changes b/w current cvs and 2.3.6, but they won't be
big.  As a practical matter, though, it would be better for you to
translate current cvs because it will be easier to apply the patches.

update your cvs. It is building fine for me this morning (on an unstable
system, though I don't know if that matters for the documentation).

Looking forward to the patches :-)
