For your information: I have received a request to update one of the
fr.po files for the Debian gettext package. According to Christophe
Combelles <[email protected]>, the submitter:

> [...] the problem is the following: I did this translation 7 months
> ago, I have contacted the initial translator and I posted the file
> in several lists for reviewing. But it seems nobody is alive, and
> the original translator doesn't seem to accept modifications of the
> initial (awful) translation, which often seems to come from an
> automatic translator. He does not even seem to be subscribed to the
> Free Translation Project mailing list...  The initial translator's
> 0.14.2 translation does not change anything at all, so I'm also
> joining the updated 0.14.2 corresponding to the file I posted.
> [...]

However, I don't think it would be a good idea to bypass the translation
team, as the gettext manual clearly says this should not be done:

    Maintainers should _never ever_ apply PO file bug reports
 themselves, short-cutting translation teams.  If some translator has
 difficulty to get some of her points through her team, it should not be
 an option for her to directly negotiate translations with maintainers.
 Teams ought to settle their problems themselves, if any.  If you, as a
 maintainer, ever think there is a real problem with a team, please
 never try to _solve_ a team's problem on your own.

So I hope you will be able to solve whatever problems you have (if any)
out of the Debian Bug System. This email is just FYI.
