It keeps on popping in-and-out of fedora... currently doesn't show 
in http://translate.fedoraproject.org/languages/es/olpc

But did the POs in the ticket made it? (as far as I can tell no, 
but I could be really confused :)

Languages are missing because Etoys has {en, es, fr, pt} and {de, 
ja} but the XO would need also: {am, ar, ha, ig, ne, ro, ru, rw, 
th, ur, yo} which is list of languages in the green countries. 
I'm trying to confirm this list, but the idea is to know the 
status of l10n regardless of the specific tracking sites.

OBX (Olpcboxes) are wiki-templates with the intent to categorize 
in a consistent manner some aspects of the activities (ie: POT & 
PO, but also source location, tickets, tests, etc).

They are a mix between cosmetics & function -- the 'old' (but 
still present) StatusBox used was hard to maintain. In some way a 
bit redundant with in-site tracking but it also integrates the 
different sites and or approaches (hopefully).
