As far as I remember, the code base was not terribly clean either... I'm not sure a soft evolution (as opposed to a rewrite) is possible. But as I won't be able to get involved in this effort, my advice is only consultative :) Juste a stupid idea: I know Christian is dreaming of setting up a pootle server on debian machines to ease translation works. What about using pootle for the interface? You would loose some functionnalities (namly, mail interface; peer reviewing infrastructure), but the code base is definitively cleaner, and could be used for something else than descriptions. Pootle "upstream" is quite active and we may ask them about the missing features, maybe. But as I said, I won't code anything here, so feel free to dump the idea and follow your first plan if you prefer :) Bye, Mt.
