Hum, I don't think so, the TCM was a Sun proprietary tool if I remember

Once done, I'll share the link to the owncloud repository here.

What I would like (but it's still a dream) is that we have something
like what LimeSurvey provides for translations, but inside Moztrap. I
don't know if it's possible. Moztrap uses python/django and I don't know
what is available for localization here.
For the moment, we will run the tests only in English, that will deprive
us from a part of the testers but that is at least better than nothing.

I'll give more information here once I've updated all the test cases and
added the new ones, then, I'll invite the QA team to take a tour ;)
