This topic wasn't raised until now in this interesting thread, but
Denis here mentions another activity of the translators :
reviewing "upstream" templates...
Though my English is.....ahem, what it is..:-)....I already helped a
lot of maintainers to improve their original templates to better
English, or better consistency among templates writing style.
A centralized repository for translations would maybe break this
The current system is far from perfect, for sure. A huge valuable time
is spent at tracking down the missing translations, the unfixed bugs
At least, the f***** damn l10n tag in the BTS would add a bit of help
to this part of the work.
