Yeah, I definitely agree with Dan here, you guys rock!  I think the
first thing would be to take a look at the POT files in libalpm and
pacman directories on CVS and see if you can translate those into your
target language (they're all probably severely out of date now).

As a side note, I know very little about translating, but I am trying
to figure out how useful po4a is for translating man pages.  Wouldn't
it make more sense just to translate the whole man page?  I know
little about this sort of thing, so feel free to slap some sense into
me if I have this wrong.  I just feel that po4a might be overkill for
the translation of 3 man pages.
