Unless I'm totally wrong, this is what get done (by me: I've been approved as
gajim launchpad member by upstream). There is a "complete branch" that has the
whole software, patched with the indicator support. The goal is to have a patch
that modify the POs so the string is translated immediately when building the
package -> no language pack support. I'm no guru and don't know what to do next
now... this is so complicated for such a beginner as I am!
