Okay, the link is up on the wiki. I've just linked to the CVS
repository for my app, since that will be updated anyway if I make any
fixes in the future. Right now, the script is pretty much sufficient
for my purposes. It has a number of commandline switches to let you
tweak it's behavior -- I haven't really tested, but theoretically you
should be able to substitute a contributor list for any string of your
choosing (the default is translator-credits), or not bother with this
behavior. You can also have the script simply report the status of
translations to you with an -s switch (same as going to the rosetta
webpage, but faster when you're already at the commandline).
