Yes, this can be done on the server, without using Gettext
on co-ordinator's machine,

I believe the potential user base is too small
to justify the packaging efforts.  I can think of no more than

would be definitely easier for me to add cron jobs for them
in address@hidden than to produce a gnun-team.deb.
