Hi Karl,

For coreutils, I request that changes/additions go through
the translation project.  AFAIK, that is the norm.

Using the translation project helps because
  - it requires that they pass the automated tests of the TP robot
  - it makes the translations available in what may be a more central location.
      It's probably easier (and less work for us) for translators to update
      them there.
  - some packages get the .po files directly from the TP site.
