By the way (and this not necessarily speaking for the rest of the
sysadmin team), I consider the translation workflow out of scope for
this thread. Moving translations to Git, or deciding how to keep SVN
working for translators, is likely to be a big, complex, and
controversial topic. It's definitely worth discussing, but not here
and now; otherwise I think the rest of the topics would get shadowed.
