I agree, we should try to harmonize although it seems to be difficult. Since 
we currently work in two repositories cvs (grass.itc) and svn (GDF), we 
probably need to find a solution, to develope and keep a glossary uptodate 
and make it easy for everybody to contribute and change entries. 

Best solution for translators would be to have one glossary file for all 
currently available languages included once in each repository, I guess. This 
is difficult to achive - I don't have a clue for that.

Someone could try to take care, that changes in one version will be commited 
to the other. Not the best solution, but maybe the easiest for now?

I could do that if we go for it - but I hope we find a better one :-).
