The translations for Konversation (to use this opportunity:
we could use some help porting our KAddressBook integration
to Akonadi) and Amarok are still in SVN. Nothing has changed
for the translators at all, in fact - scripty abstracts the
difference away by grabbing from and committing to our git

There are currently no plans to move translations into git.

Yeah, tracking moves like that, as well as things like apps
moving from playground into kdereview and then finally a mo-
dule, is why Thiago's old ruleset if woefully incomplete and
why writing the rules files is such a mammoth task (and will
need the cooperation and collaboration from actual develop-
ers on the respective codebases to make certain decisions
at times, etc.)
