the best way is to contact xarchiver upstream on the xfce4 i18n mailing
list. However they are not working on a new branch of xarchiver and I don't
think they'll change much on the 0.3 series. But for translating the current
package even with missing pot entries you can go to
and start translating what is in dapper now. Although I am not sure how much
time is left till rosetta translation freeze.
