  We based the Lynx NLS support partly on the Chebucto Lynx patches,
merging in both code and translations going back a couple years. The
Chebucto and lynx-dev versions have diverged since then; I'm not aware
of any cross-fertilization since.

  I collect unofficial translation sets for the lynx-dev version.  The
French message catalog I have is directly descended from the Chebucto
one since I can barely read French and can't write anything other than a
few words. If anyone in your group can update it or work with the Free
Translation Project to do so, we would be grateful.
