"All translations submitted into Rosetta are the work of the translator
that created them, and are submitted under the same license as the
software being translated."

so all contibutions are GPL. Canonical can take the Rosetta
contributions and sell them if they want, but that doesn't affect us
directly -- they can't revoke the GPL from the contributed translations.
