PO files in ja-trans package are already uploaded to mainly japo@flatout.org,
which is unofficial translation project, because official translation
project (ja@li.org) requires written "copyright disclaimer" and many
people probably can not get it from their employer.
Anyway, some people are now contributing some of these PO files, and
we are inviting more and more people to contribute to do it.
