Tumbleweed can be translated, indeed it should be

No, it _must_ be, because it is now one of two main distributions
produced by the openSUSE Project

Even for Leap, we must consider that the very concept of 'frozen'
releases is becoming less and less relevant.

Heck, even SUSE Linux Enterprise has modules which are constantly
updated and so would require constant translations

Our tools and processes need to update to face that challenge

You cannot keep on doing things the way you always used to.
This is no disrespect to the fine work you and others have done with
translations in the past, but the things have to change. Welcome to

They were not working because the developers were not doing their

our side of the system, the side that was working correctly, bad.

implement huge changes to things without talking with the rest, that
happen to have outside addresses.

Carlos, let me say this very clearly

The _contributors_ who are _contributing_ Weblate are _CONTRIBUTORS_ like you

The project's guiding principles ( ) make it clear
that we're a project that values respect for other persons and

If you wish to continue to disrespect the Weblate contributors by
discriminating against them because of their email address, if you
continue to act in this mindset of 'us' vs 'them', I strongly
encourage you to find another project that will tolerate your world
view, because it will not be accepted here.
