Hi again,

I just re-updated blender-translate trunk with most recent pot/po files.
(I guess the only thing that matters is the pot, since the .pos are in the

I think it's a good practice to update them in the blender-translate branch
(which could be indeed part of b.org) but not necessarily in trunk.
However there is no real need to keep in trunk anything but .po with new
translated strings (i.e. if I don't replace the trunk's po with a new
pt_BR.po from the blender-translate branch there is no need to update
pt_BR.po only to count on more non-translated strings (the resulting .mo
will be the same)).

In trunk we could strictly only keep the .mo and .po when we have an update
from the translators.
