It's fine with me - I hate the robot too. Who do I nag? Havoc?

The thing is that this is becoming a hot avocado. GNOME 2.6 is out
soon, and Nautilus is going to look suboptimal without the translated
file types.

One problem with dropping the Translation Project is the lack of
status pages. But perhaps we can persuade Carlos of the GNOME
translation status pages fame to extend his magic to Freedesktop too.
