Dan already host all pot and po files, he already gave a link to them
and to translation instructions in the string freeze announcement :

While I am perfectly sure you only have good intentions, and the page
looks pretty cool, the content is currently not so nice. It provides
different pot files and different instructions than the pacman
project. I am worried someone could fall on that and start translating
from scratch a file that is already translated.
It also shows an incomplete and different list of translators for
pacman and libalpm.

For a project like the installer which has currently no translations,
that is all good.
For a project like pacman which already has translations and a way to
deal with them, you should either simply give links, or integrate the
same contents, information and instructions. Starting something in
parallel for this kind of stuff does not do any good in my opinion.

Though don't believe I am angry or anything, I am simply trying to
explain why I think the current page should be changed.
