Usually we prefer when authors send their patches themselves as 
attribution is important to us and it gets trickier when there's a 
middle agent.

Note that you can download the latest Slovenian PO file from the 
following URL:


Given this, would the following work for you?

 * Create a 'po' directory and download the above sl.po file into it
 * Make a copy of it called 'sl.po.orig'
 * Update the translation in 'sl.po'
 * When done, run the following command to generate a patch:
   diff -u po/sl.po.orig po/sl.po >sl.diff
 * Then email the 'sl.diff' file to wine-patches.

If not I can work with you and I'm sure some other solution can be 

We're also trying to set things up so one can go to a web site and 
translate Wine there which I guess would be ideal for you. But we're 
being blocked by attribution issues. That is the existing systems appear 
to be unable to track who translated what and to preserve that 
information when submitting the patches. So unfortunately there's no ETA 
for when such a system will be ready. Hopefully this email will rekindle 
interest in finally overcomming this issue...
