No, it's just due a performance issue. We are not storing .po files in
raw format, but inside a database so to export a .po file we need to
process all rows in the database and reconstruct the .po file. That's
not possible to do in a single web transaction so we need to do it in an
async way.

We have a bug report open to add direct link downloads based on a cache
we have for exports. You can track its status at

As said in a previous email, we are trying to improve the cooperation
with upstream (either it being GNOME, KDE, Debian or any other project)
but it's impossible to have everything perfect from the beginning. It's
just a matter of time to finish the implementation of the missing parts
of the puzzle.

Cheers.
