It does indeed. Thank you.

Although I am obviously fine with translating in Git, I wonder if 
putting Bulgarian translation in TP wouldn't be better.
 1) new translators will be able to help by following the docs
    (also, translators coming back from the void (cough) won't be 
    looking stupid by following the docs :))
 2) there won't be different channels of translation for iso_3166 and 
    other iso_*

I hope this doesn't create much work for you.

Not sure if I shall then send updates both to Git or only TP is enough 
(or even if I'd have any use of the Git commit access at all).
