You need to sign up for a Transifex account. From there, you can access
a web-based form for adding and updating localisations. You should be
able to add new locales yourself, but if not, let me know, and I can get
it setup.

It will be done, when it is done! We do hope to have it out soon. There
were some new UI features we were adding, that expanded the scope a bit.
Hope to finish those up in the next week.

We used to have nightly/automated builds, but due to the fact that we
are releasing secure software, we were worried about producing builds
w/o any proper verification or signing by a human.

You can find the dev project and alpha/beta builds here:

Thanks for filing the ticket. We will consider this for a future
release. Is there a specific reason you need this, other than it being
just a nice thing to do? Do people often rename their contacts?

Hmm, interesting. I can see how that could be useful.

Thanks for the feedback and support!
