Thanks Stéphane for the heads up!

As it's not covered by language packs, the slideshow is a package in
which translators would benefit from translation updates being released
more often and developers from more automation and less manual uploads.

That's why I would very much recommend setting up automatic translation
imports and exports. If you'd have translations automatically committed
to the current branch, you'd basically be able to forget about
translations (save for updating the template) and they would
automatically be included in each and every upload.

Translators would then be able to see the results of their work quickly
and react promptly to fixing typos, completing untranslated strings or
file bugs for untranslatable ones.

Setting this up is very easy, and shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

Here are the steps:

1. Go to:
2. On the left pane (automatic imports), check that the right branch for
imports is set. If not, set it to the right branch for Precise.
3. On the left pane (automatic imports), choose "Import template files"
4. On the right pane (automatic exports), choose the same branch
5. That's it!

What do you think, would you be up for setting this up?
