Is Aptitude upstream?

Let me give you an example from the ubuntu-translator point of view.
I am a member of both Ubuntu-nl and KDE-nl translators. In Launchpad 
(Maverick) there are at least 30 unfinished KDE templates. Should I only 
have to translate these in Launchpad, I think it would not cost me more than 
a couple of hours, because many of these templates need only a few strings 
to be translated. But if I have to download all these .po files individually 
from KDE, translate them, and upload them to both KDE and Launchpad it will 
cost me more than a week (if I work several hours a day).
