Right, I think that is the case.

Doesn't that mean that anyone working on git.git will never get to see
their localized language, even when it is not likely to be communicated
to the rest of the project? I am OK with that as a native speaker, but I

I suspect we will end up with people not setting i18n.projectlang, and
getting Klingon diffstats on the list.
