I'm not completely familiar with how po files work, but I am guessing
they are out of date and/or missing translations. Depending on our
eventual release, we should send out some requests to people for any
translations they can help us with. Before this point, we should set
ourselves a deadline for changing text output in pacman. I believe
this was mentioned in another email by Aaron, but moving the logging
out of the backend would have another advantage- it allow us to not
need translation in the library. I guess there could be more text in
the backend that I'm not sure about, but I haven't looked closely
enough. I'm sure we could generate some interest on the forums for
translations to multiple languages if we give enough advance notice.
