Well there's no l10n in TP1, but I assume there will be in the final KF 5.0 
release, some frameworks have translatable strings (e.g. kio).

I can branch it if you prefer, I just thought, since this is the "master" in 
the future (it's already the master branch of all frameworks), maybe we can 
avoid some merging fun by doing such changes (like the diff I pasted here) in 

It's different for the list of modules indeed. I was thinking about not 
committing that, but indeed it's easier for someone else to take over if I 
commit the stuff. Either in a separate file (that has to be copied over 
modules.git), or in a separate branch indeed. As you prefer.
