When a new version of WordPress is released, the development branches
in two. For example after 3.0
was released we have two main branches: trunk -- the code there will
be the future 3.1, and 3.0 -- the code there will be the future
bug-fix 3.0.1, 3.0.2 and so on.

Translations follow WordPress development. The 3.0.x project is
derived from the 3.0 branch of WordPress and should be used

I agree it is confusing right now. What I've seen in other places and
which works is setting active projects -- this way random users will
know to contribute there and the rest will be updated only if needed.

Here is the ticket in trac and I will work on this in the next days:

Happy translating,
