We started the OSGeo-Live 10.5 release cycle with a goal of adopting 
transifex to do our translations.

Our initial attempts hit some hurdles, and Richard Duivenvoorde joined 
our team providing us with some excellent guidance. But transifex is not 
ready yet to hand over to the OSGeo-Live translators, and ideally we 
want to give translators plenty of time to get familiar with the new 
tools. Considering that we should have already created a beta version 2 
weeks ago (as per Angelos' email below) I think we should go with our 
prior, manual git based translation for the 10.5 release.

Richard has suggested that we should have Tranifex in place before 
FOSSGIS (22 March) and FOSS4G-EU (18 July). These events could be a good 
opportunity to set up a Tranifex translation workshop or code-sprint or 
similar if someone would like to set it up?


Angelos, I'm +1 for creating a beta ASAP. We just need to check the 
version number in the docs reflects the version number of the beta.

Is our spreadsheet with version numbers up to date?
