Thanks! How can we (original MapOSMatic developers) have administration

What are the problems you had? If it can't import the existing .po,
it's quite annoying.

Also, what would be the bi-directional workflow for the .po files? On
one side, we regularly need to inject into Transifex the new strings to
translate, and on the other side, we regularly need to fetch from
Transifex the latest translation updates. How would this work?

I guess our Wiki is read-only, we had too much spam. We can certainly
give write access to some identified contributors.

I will take care of it.

It is used in some kind of unit test to test if the _() function is
available. I guess it could be done in a different way.

Yes, as David said, they are not used at the same place, and they are
already not the same (there are more URLs in one version than the
other) and are likely to further diverge in the future. One is used for
the cover page of booklets (where we have quite a bit of space), the
other one is used in the footer of poster maps (where the space is
