whoever committed to HEAD made a mistake and it is my intention to not
merge the translations but simply take the ones from gimp-1-2 into HEAD
thereby overwriting any changes that have been applied to HEAD but not
to the stable branch. For this reason I've asked the translators to
update their translations in the stable branch now.
All I want to achieve at the moment is to get a set of working
translations for the 1.3.0 developers release. Those translation need
not to be complete and there will be plenty of time to update the
translations when we approach the stable 1.4.0 release.
For the HEAD branch, we should try to find a responsible translation
maintainer for each language. The language maintainer should have CVS
commit access and is responsible for coordinating his/her team of
Gimp-developer mailing list
