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.
