Switch to Translation project for Subversion?

[sent to current Subversion translators as listed in COMMITTERS]

This is a proposal to use the Translation project for the Subversion
translations, since most of the existing ones have not been kept up to

There are experienced teams for the languages that Subversion is
currently translated into and many more. The risk for orphaned
localisations will be lower since the teams deal with continuity
themselves. Users will enjoy higher consistency in terms of vocabulary
and style across software packages.

The details can be read at http://translationproject.org. Current
Subversion translators who wish to continue their work would join
their respective TP teams, where they would no doubt be more than
welcome, with no obligation to take on more work but with the benefit
of working in a larger team.

An alternative proposal would be to use the existing Pootle instance
at <https://translate.apache.org/projects/Subversion/>. Either would
be an improvement on the current situation. I'm personally more in
favour of TP as it to me appears more organised and having translated
a greater number of relevant software packages.
