Common Pootle tasks

Pootle 2.x is a complex piece of software, with many optional features and several deployment scenarios. It is impossible for us at translate.org.za to test all situations. So please help us.

This is a list of common tasks, try to go through them with the latest beta release and report bugs on http://bugs.locamotion.org

We are particularly interested in reports about mod_python, PosteGreSQL and version control.
