Transiflex is the workflow tool for the translation process that was 
decided on within the translation team. As this tool is quite new to most 
of us, we're still trying to find our way around in it and mistakes can 
happen due to our combined inexperience with the tool. Keeping things 
properly in sync in both svn and transifex is also a process that we'll 
end up mastering through working more with it.

In my experience Oliver has been trying very much so to make any needed 
changes without as little fuss as possible for all the language teams. 
While we all can still learn from gentle corrections and pointers, I think 
they should be delivered in exactly that way: gentle. I find your messages 
cutting into Oliver's work anything but. Finally, if you want to argue over 
things already decided within the i18n team, please feel free to join it.

My two cents worth,
