This is true for Ubuntu, which does not send upstream its *package*
translations because upstream does this better - but Ubuntu doesn't work
on these packages, although they appear in Launchpad translation (this
is kin of a bug).

But Launchpad is designed to be the main hosting for whole projects
(like Inkscape does now), and then translations go "upstream" because
upstream is on Launchpad. I guess there's a mechanism to get .po files
from Launchpad and use it in our packaging (at least manually, and maybe
automatically with a svn access too).

Christian: I've had some trouble with the current translation project in
the past, because nobody on the French list would answer me about
marking the French translation as "in progress" while I was working on
it. And that system is really hard to handle for translators, all their
technical stuff is a little frightening even for me. But obviously,
using two systems will result in synchronisation issues. Maybe we can
hope they will make it easier. GNUnet at the moment is not a main
package so main translators don't seem to give it a high priority -
which more occasional translators and users would maybe.

I'll check about the icons script, but there should be no issues if the
icons were installed correctly to /usr/share/icons/XXX. Thanks
