I was talking to Marco (of RedHat) on the irc channel a while back, and he
directions on how to "git" sugar , which included a .pot file for the UI.
I created the yoruba, igbo and hausa po files and sent them back to him.
so there are nigerian po files there now!
Thanks for all your help and advice.
