As far as I know there is no reason for them to
match. At runtime (if found) the qm files are used,
regardless of what the .ts files might have.

There is no point on versioning a generated binary
file on a source code repository. Those shouldn't
even be there to begin with.

Come on. You must be kidding :)

Yes, I don't think thats a problem but keep in mind
it doesn't even have to be that way if you don't like.
We can have an alternate way of distributing those qm
files, maybe a tarball, dunno. Not saying is a good
idea, just saying.

Best regards
