Here what I did:
1- svn checkout for /trunk/l10n-kf5/ar/docmessages
2- update files in /docmessages/kturtle with Arabic translation in po file
3- at docmessages folder, I run this:
SCRIPTY_I18N_BRANCH=trunk_kf5 ../script/l10n-scripty/update_xml ar kturtle
3- The output is a new folder with name "documentation" and inside it a
folder with name "kturtle" having English docbook files!

It seems that update_xml does not recognize ar. Do I miss something here?
