Or "at most"? ;)
I'm not sure why we can't discuss app reviews on kde-devel, where we discuss
most non-core app code currently.

The helper script exists already, l10n/scripts/rename_or_move, but it needs
a full l10n checkout, which only a few people have. Someone on IRC a few
days ago (iirc the katapult author) started to write a script that does a partial
checkout using svn ls + svn up -N, but it's probably not stable/generic yet,
and I guess it will take longer than rename_or_move for those with a full checkout,
and then we have two scripts to maintain....

Well this was some of it :)

You mean one product like "review"? Assuming we can hide it from users...
We wouldn't gain much though; more setup just for archiving, which lists give us too?
