I set this up during my last translation round.

It worked sufficiently well for strings that have no special formatting requirements. It also worked well for out-of-band changes, e.g. merging items translated locally with those translated in Pootle.

For anything that includes non-trivial help output and special formatting, I found it to be cumbersome.

Regular local scan of trunk, uploading it to Pootle, translating/review, and commit into source.

You would not use the .pot but the .po, so as to not loose existing translations.
For other translations: setting them up in Pootle, I did not want to presume that other po maintainers would want to do that.

Pootle has automation opportunities of scanning the code base, have not explored.

Is that something we want to kick off for the next release?
