First of all, I will sent the actual my proposal later to share with you.
I think we will want to adjust setting for the TEST(etoys) project on 
Pootle to validate if it works for us actually and need your help,

  This was just my misunderstanding and I will revise it.

  Yep.  At least release we as developers can verify PO by comparing, 
compiling, that is what I meant as QA.  I suspect many people of 
translation community have even gettext tools.

 When I tested, I experienced such error on uploading that file name 
doesn't confrm to GNU style.  So I had to change etoys_test.po to ja_ZZ.
po.  Was this because of Pootle's settings?  can the rule be relaxed 
even in GNU style setting?

 In the former style we can split huge etoys.po into smaller pieces or 
can register additional POs for addons without big change when we want. 
 (I assume Bert want to split it... )  In the later style we can't.  
 With the restriction I would choose the former even if we don't need to 
right now.
