By default Pootle uses the following layout (xx_YY being the 
language code):

But it can also handle GNU's all-in-one structure:

Currently all 'assembled projects' (xo_core, xo_bundled & 
update1_core) use Pootle's default and Etoys test project uses 
GNU's layout. And so far, so good :)

Another thing to note is that for 'version controlled' .po & .pot 
files we have symlinks going from Pootle's hierarchy into the 
version control directory. Not only is the sane way (according to 
the Pootle people) but it is also what allows us to have those 
'assembled projects', all of which have a GNU layout in their git
