CVS would change the file to insert the version, which would probably 
corrupt the binary structure.

Right, that's what pgadmin3-release.pot is good for. We rarely remove 
strings, so this seems reasonable.

I don't understand the question. We *do* distribute the languages 
packaged, no?

Every 60 days (e.g.) updates are checked, and a feedback is given to the
