I've also heard good things about Transifex when working on XFCE stuff.
The only "bad" part I observed there is the commit logs get jammed with
generic, auto-generated commits/messages, hiding all the code changes. I
don't know if this would be the case for Geany as it probably has more
code-related changes and less translation changes than the project I
have experienced this with.
BTW, I'd rather see such an automated system perform PRs than direct
committing. Basically I don't really trust automated systems to commit
to a repository  :)
Though, indeed having a system simplifying the translator's work is
As Matthew mentioned, the Xfce project is using Transifex for years and
as far as I know, without bigger problems.
I'm pretty much sure such a system would help the Geany project as well
as it will be much easier for translators to contribute.
 what if the thing has a security issue that leads
for anyone to be
able to commit anything? or things like that? I know we trust Git and
GitHub here, but they seem more trustworthy security-wise than a
translation webapp :)
Very good point.
A quick internet search didn't reveal much about Transifex being able to
create pull requests, though.
But Transifex seems to be able to work with branches. Maybe we could set
up a i18n branch to which Transifex pushes directly and Frank or whoever
else wants to, merges or cherry-picks from this branch to master on demand.
The reverse merge from master to the i18n branch can be automated, probably.
I have no idea if this could work reliably in production, so far it's
just an idea :).
