Ok, .org username?

I can do that, but there really is no need to use svn for that. Twenty
Ten's translations live in GlotPress now, and are used when building
the locale releases

Whatever is done, usually has a reason, or several:

>it is very important that multiple languages at one site (nb and nn) be implemented quickly.

Yes, I agree it is important. However given the proximity of 3.0 and
the intricacies which will inevitably result on the logic of linking
repositories and the GlotPress configuration to such a setup, the
priorities, at this time, reside elsewhere, as explained before:

> So, dear coordinators: Both nn and nb people requested this feature before you went off and set up no.wordpress.org.
> If you are not able to implement dual languages quickly, the correct thing to do would be to move no. to nb. for now.

It's fine by me, if the original requesters agree with you, sure. We
didn't produce 'no' out of a magician's hat. The whole previous
discussion illustrates how we got there.

My point, precisely
