Git offers many benefits to translators too. Now ordinary translators do not
have any commit access at all
and they send their translations to maintainer and maintainer uploads large
commits that are hard to review.

With git it is possible to use workflow where every translator can commit to
some git repository and later translation maintainer pushes translations
into main repo. This workflow allows better review of translations by
ordinary translators.
