No, they can be easily generated when we commit or in batch and would 
end taking up unnecessary space on Trac.

Adding them to the diff would also not let us decide when they are 
regenerated (e.g. per commit. per day, per RC, etc...).

We have not yet decided what we will do if a patch includes those files 
but there is a possibility that we could ask the submitter to provide us 
with a diff file which doesn't include them.

Don't worry, we are also translators (Kenni is a translator for Danish 
and I for French) and know that for some of you having .qm files 
generated against the latest .ts you submitted is important.

However if you notice that it doesn't seem to have been generated (there 
might be a reason for this like a planned batch regeneration of them) 
ping us on this mailing list and one of us will respond as soon as possible.

(Please do not use Trac for this, use this mailing list...)

Who ends up replying to you (if your query is not, for some reason, 
directed toward one of us more specifically) will probably depend on the 
day and the time of day your query is posted (there is about a 6 hour 
difference between Kenni and I (Kenni's timezone is CET/CEST I believe 
while mine is EDT/EST)) but somebody should reply to you in a timely manner.

Have a nice day!
