Songbird is OK with a 3rd party partner on updating locales of 2 Open-Source addons with no real consultation with community while these addons are on the BabelZilla platform for everybody to work on the locales. I don't really agree.

Proof is here :

This partner might want to modify strings for their needs but since it's on BabelZilla platform they should at least inform community about this move. Or POTI can remove all official addons from BabelZilla and maybe put strings in the official Website ?

I support this claim. Note that there is no question here on having any kind of monopoly over translations on BabelZilla, if Songbird hosts extension translations it is just ok for us, we only wish to be informed so as to avoid useless duplicate work, translators on BabelZilla can also collaborate to another translation platform as they like, but they need to be informed.

Agree on the whole Babelzilla - Official Songbird AddOn thing...
Bugs like Bug 22452 – Clean up Shoutcast locales have a quite low priority...

We are waiting for an official response from POTI, on decision taken for the future of addons localization.
