Hi translators,

In one of the sessions this past UDS we talked about gettext support in
LibreOffice, and I took an action to give you a heads up about this
proposal, in case any of you with development skills would like to
explore it.

Migrating the custom translation format inherited from to
gettext was proposed as a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) idea for
LibreOffice a while ago.

If you are interested, you'll find more information here:

Looking at the timeline below, it seems that it'd be too late to pick it
up as a project for the current GSoC, but there is no reason for anyone
to look into it outside of a GSoC project.

I'm adding Björn Michaelsen, our current LibreOffice maintainer on CC,
as he might be able to better answer questions that you might have.
