Thank you. This is good news.

Probably it's important to say, that translators should not commit their 
translations too often to Pidgin Monotone (not every day for instance). 
I haven't tested it intensively, but I think that each translation 
update may increase the Pidgin Monotone database for some hundred 
kilobyte. Translation files can produce big text diffs because they 
contain source code line numbers which often change. (It's possible to 
strip the comments, but this makes reading the translations hard without 
regenerating the comments from source code.)
