So there has certainly been a change in emphasis, even if it shouldn't be 
termed a "decision to switch" :-)

Moving the translated file up two dirs from po and running lupdate seems to be 
the easiest - the qmake -project and then lupdate way still doesn't seem to 
update the one in situ in the po dir.

That will be helpful - thanks, Alex.

Yes, indeed.  But my original point was that when the translator periodically 
gets his/her new copy installed, as I did yesterday, and sees that some work 
needs doing, it would be nice to make it as easy as possible to get going on 
that.  That becomes more important the more prestigious the app becomes, as 
is deservedly happening to Scribus.
