After spending a while reading and re-reading your addition to the
CG git stuff, it sounds like this only applies to translated docs
-- i.e. as long as I don't mess with anything in de/ es/ fr/ etc/,
it's safe to "git pull -r".

Is that correct?  If so, I'll amend the warning to begin
"translators: if you have changed committishes..."
