Sounds good.  Do we need to host POT files on our side?  I naively
though Weblate would host them.

A Savannah project would be a sledgehammer; what about having a
sub-directory at with all the POT files?  All we’d need to
do is add a couple of nginx ‘location’ blocks to the config in

Who is “them” in this last sentence?

There was a question about copyright holders for translations; to me
it’s clearly individual translators, and translations that indicate
otherwise are probably the result of misconfiguration in ‘Makevars’
and/or copy/paste.

The PO files at <> and
<> state:

  This file is distributed under the same license as the guix package.

which is perfect.

Those at <> have
the same statement, but it should rather be the same license as the
manual (GFDL).  Perhaps a ‘Makevars’ issue too?  Since there are a
handful of translators involved, we can probably just contact them and
change that sentence.
