Thanks for mentioning this.  I was relying on
<http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/translation/HTML/status.html> which says
that one should get the official .po files from "maint/DOMAIN/LL.po".

But I see now that, for example,
<http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/translation/maint/bison/fr.po> is way out
of date -- it's dated June 14 (and is the latest translation available
in its directory).  Bison should be using
(both dated September 21).

I could write a script like that, but it's easier for me if the
translation project would fix things to match its documentation.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Translation Project update
procedure got broken when bison-runtime was introduced.  I see that,
for example, Gawk's translations are still being updated, as
<http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/translation/maint/gawk/ga.po> is dated
September 26.

Also, perhaps someone should review all the maint/DOMAIN/LL.po and
teams/PO/LL/DOMAIN-VERSION.po files, and see whether there are any
other discrepancies like this one.
