Separate from the tremendous amount of feedback from the community I quickly want to outline the pydotorg setup for later reuse.
We have the most recent versions of Sphinx (with Native Language Support), Pootle and Translate Toolkit running from checkout on our servers and a current checkout of the Sphinx project source in question. There is a directory for
.pot files (message templates) built by Sphinx and one for
.mo files (compiled catalogs) built from Pootle’s
.po files (message catalogs). One last directory is used for translated HTML builds.
