Now I can get all content in po files, so I don't need force option
anymore. Though it's still a good thing to have.

So how can I submit those files when translated? If there is a script
that can convert po files back to the format email interface could
receive, it would be fine too.

Now I use a script to merge po translations to existing files
retrieved from the email interface, but when directly accessing po
files generated from database, I cannot do this anymore. I am thinking
about to add those metadata (i.e. package name, id, priority, etc) to
the header of po files, then write a script able to convert the file
and submit via email interface.

Thanks again, can you also make a daily tarball for download, so I
don't need to use "wget -m" everyday?
