T(A)ILS is the result of the merge of the Incognito and Amnesia Live
systems; It is listed on the Tor Projects page [1].

Is it imaginable to add the T(A)ILS website [2] to the Tor project's
Pootle instance? 

Rationale: on the one hand our website already offers a translation
interface based on PO files; on the other hand, some of our
translators have expressed the need for a better UI. They are used to
Pootle's one. They would love it if the "Improve translation" link
present on almost every page of our site did point to Pootle.

Technical details: our website is based on ikiwiki and is managed with
Git. We can provide the needed access via ssh keys to enable Pootle to
read from and write to our Git repository. From the Pootle version
control documentation [3] I can infer our website's layout falls into
the "special directory layouts" category that needs a bunch of
symlinks to emulate the "standard" Pootle directory layout. I'm sure
we can easily provide a script that creates and maintains the needed
symlinks in a target directory that Pootle could work on.

Our Git repository additionally contains PO files for a few programs
that are specific to T(A)ILS. I guess they also could be translated
using Pootle provided the symlinks are properly maintained.

Thoughts and comments welcome both on technical and non-technical
