I think what Hyrum is doing is asking for a volunteer (perhaps a current
translator) to take over this aspect of the release process and notify
the translators. Could you do that?

Then only one translator has to watch the list, instead of all the
translators watching.

In other words, every time a developer changes a msg string, they should
search for it in all the PO files and change it there too?

Is that the task we're talking about? I want to make sure I understand
before I comment further; but if that's accurate, it sounds like a
non-starter to me. We can't afford that kind of overhead on changes,
especially since so many changes involve changing a string. We'd need
to find another way to unfuzzy.
