Thanks for the tip Paul.

Nevertheless, this is too much work for external contributors. Usually, they
just need the pot & po files of all packages for a language.

Three suggestions then, in decreasing preference:

  1. Allow anonymous access of the `translate` module from the CVS.
  2. Include a link to the files in the i18n statistics page.
  3. Produce a nightly public .tgz with the pot & po files for each language.

Are these too difficult to arrange?
