Sorry, but where exactly do I find the main trunk? I can see all
locale folders just fine, but which is the main one?

Yes. Nice and easy.

Won't GlotPress package the .po/.mo files when building at
da.wordpress.org? Do I have to manually eksport them and then move it
the to messages folder? Before building the new package.

Yes, but I might skip that. I think it has been skipped for the last
couple of versions. Those capable of manually filling in the setup
data can read the original comments too. It's a sensitive file with
very little room for i.e. blank line, wrong character etc. I would
rather leave it be than risk 'headers already sent ...' errors.

When you say below /dist I'm guessing you mean in the /dist folder. Am
I right :-)

Best regards
