Thanks to Remmy I'm testing somewhat expanded version of his script. For
now it shows and logs changed chosen language and pot files and some other
useful functions. It already helps me discover changes in svn. I will also
post it here after testing. Would such a bash script be useful also to
sysadmins as we really need some notification of pot files changes in svn?

Today I already discovered that DrakX.pot file has changed yesterday.


PS. One question for Remmy. Why did you mentioned svn commit access? Have
you expand your script too?

Have a nice weekend,
