Yes, but the releaseme script does it automatically. Please refer to:

Translation templates are automatically extracted every day in a separate
place by a set of script called scripty (on the subversion repository, see ). The releaseme script knows
where to find them.

That said, before releasing, we need to move the po/ folder away from the kup
repository and configure the extraction for kup on the scripty side. I can
work on it later today or tomorrow.
