  --force                  : force operation to run

I thought it meant quietly overwrites ...  But it is not as I tested..
you are right.

I agree it is worse.  

Is there any good way to **force overwrite**

po file can be updated on www-master while building but next cron may
try to overwrite with new po file .. then conflict happens.

I know we need to sync po before commiting to avoid this.  But build
system relying on such consistency is not-so-robust.
