Setting up i18n.debian.org?

Ubuntus' Rosetta is non-free but perhaps this might be a promising replacement. If we set up something like this as a central place for translations, it might be very useful for people who wish to contribute to the i18n of Debian. What do you think?

Entrans version 0.3 has been released

    Entrans is an online collaborative translation tool that can be
used for the translation of PO files. Entrans was developed with
Indic community in mind and has features, like built-in input editor,
that make the translation job a lot easier for Indic translators.

New Features in Entrans ver 0.3

   1. Multi-Language Implementation
   2. File Hierarchy
   3. Upload/Download of compressed files/archives*
   4. Upload PO files via URL*
   5. Perform upload process in the background*
   6. PO files downloadable by all users
   7. Modular source code

      * Platform/External application dependent feature

Multi-Language Implementation
  Entrans can now be deployed for translation of PO files of multiple
languages. This has been a long-standing request from the community
and has be implemented in the current version.

File Hierarchy
  To better organize all the uploaded into Entrans a virtual PO file
hierarchical structure is now available. PO files can be uploaded or
organized into different branches thereby maintaining a neat file

Upload/Download of compressed files/archives
   Compressed archives of PO files can now be uploaded into Entrans.
PO files can be compressed in the following
formats .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .gz, .bz2, .bz and then
uploaded. This feature requires the web-server hosting Entrans to be
a Linux based one.

Upload PO files via URL
  PO files on the Internet can also be uploaded into Entrans. Simply
create a text file having one URL per line and save the text file
with a ".url" extension. When you upload this text file into Entrans,
it retrieves the PO files from the given URL. This feature requires
the web-server hosting Entrans to be a Linux based one and requires
"wget" to be installed and configured properly.

PO files downloadable by all users
  Another request from the community was that any user should be able
to download the PO files and translate it offline, if he chooses to.
This option is now available. A user can now download a file/files
and translate it/them using some other tool. The user can then send
the translated PO files to the administrator of Entrans, who will
merge it with the file already in Entrans.

Modular source code
   The source code has been made more modular so that it is more
readable for the developers and the community.
