Upstream does. Tomasz (upstream author) has used Debian-originated
translations for his last upstream release (shadow 4.0.8).

And, yes he has a CVS.

However, upstream's version is currently 4.0.8 (soon 4.0.9) while
Debian version still is 4.0.3. There are lots of differences in strings.

The Debian maintainers (Nicolas François, Alexander Gattin, Martin
Quinson and myself) are working on resyncing Debian with
upstream. Tomasz Klockzo is associated to this work which involves
reviewing all Debian specific patches accumulated over years while the
former maintainer of shadow did't work with upstream to get these
patches merged in upstream.

This will be a very long path, be patient.

In the meantime, all shadow translators will probably be requested for
translation updates targeted at upstream when Tomasz will prepare his
releases. One may happen soon for 4.0.9
