Thanks for the pointer, indeed there could be some code syncing here.
Using rsync seems better. I'm not ready to use bootstrap in my projects
yet, though, since I want the git repository to be possible to bootstrap
without a network connection. But I don't see any harm in having .po
rules in both bootstrap and maint.mk -- the maintiner choses which to
use. I'll experiment with a rsync-based approach.
