I told you already in the past that adding PO support for a new language
is done in one minute. You don't need to depend on "upstream" support
for it as the Release Notes projects demonstrates (only a single
Makefile has to be added which contains some po4s specific targets).
It's fairly simple (at least it was for Release Notes).

So just say: I want to work on ... Please send me the PO file. That
should be all.

(Of course the package maintainer would need to add a new po4a
dependency but I'm sure this would never be a problem. Because of a po4a
bug (wrong return value) generated SGML/XML files are currently
checked in beside .po as well for DDP documents.)
