Well, OK, I have not yet looked at DDTSS code but implementing a
diff old new and drop the issue if there is no diff does not sound as
hard to implement. Martijn, could you please comment on this?

So if somebody by chance asked for a translation but wants to
abandon his actions I see no reason why there should be any
action done by DDTSS. This is even less important than
a zero diff between old and new. Or did I misunderstood you?
I was talking about the "Abandon" button on the translation page.

OK, so I missinterpreted the force option. It seems to have one
primary effect if I understand you right: Put the translation in question
onto the list of pending translations. The fact that I'm able to edit
the translation seems like just a side effect. So we actually need
the functionality: "I would like to review a translation. Ignore my
actions if I did not changed anything."

Ah, OK, this makes sense. Is there any bug tracker for DDTSS
so we could collect all those wishlist features to be able to work
on this at DebConf?

OK, the link containing force is not displayed any more.
