Some of this is already possible: you can grab a tarball of all
translations in Rosetta easily.  You can also upload tarballs with a
bunch of PO files, but depending on blender being marked as upstream
using Rosetta, or just a distro package, you might run into privilege
problems (which is expected, imho :).


For translators working on translations, when they upload a single PO
file, they do have option for specifying overrides (but not to
manually resolve them).

Agreed, that sounds like a sane option, and it's something along those
lines what we'll implement once we start on better support for
upstream projects.
