On that note, you want to mark elements in the .policy file(s), e.g.
this guy


as translatable cf.


Check out PolicyKit-gnome to see how it's done (line 52-59 of
Makefile.am contains the rules)


The requisite i18n toolchain stuff landed in intltool 0.36; you want to
depend on that I think.

As an aside, how are you planning to deal with translations? I have the
same problem with PolicyKit-gnome; my plan is to have a SVN mirror on
GNOME SVN (no way in hell I'm going to be using SVN instead of git,
thank you very much). Or maybe GNOME already supports git repos and the
GNOME translators look there?
