Andras, you rock! Thanks a lot for all the work and committing the two
test languages into the new main repo

I am going to look at it. The plan is to get rid of the "l10n" repo and
use the new "translations" repo exclusively. My steps will be:

  + download "translations" instead of "l10n" repo
  + allow to build internal translate toolkit (libs-extern repo)
  + set the new  L10N_MODULE in solenv/inc/settings.mk
  + modify build.lst in "all" module to depend on
    TRANSLATIONS:translations instead of L10N:l10n
  + fix potential build probles

I would like to finish this before we tag for LO-3.4-alpha1.

The only question is how many localizations we would want to support in
alpha1. IMHO, it would be nice to add "de, fr, it" because we have big
communities in these countries. Did I miss any important one? I would
add the others later after we know that it works (for next alpha/beta).

Best Regards,
