 It's psicological. Two scenarios.

 * I have an hour left. I will download a 2Mb package to translate a 30k file.
 * I have an hour left. I've seen that .pot files are included in every
"doc" directory. Let's look at one and make a translation.

 But I know that this won't happen, as I'm the only one that thinks this.
That's why I'm bringing this new idea: To change the "Donations" link to a
more general "Help us" page. In this page we would have the "Donations", nut
also what people could do to help Debian. And there would be a link to every
.pot file in the system (automatically extracted).
 This would encourage users to become translator... there's a huge potential
in that.
