Skipping the nerd drama, suffice it to say that there were creative differences. It is current TP policy to kick out any projects that accept user translations for languages for which TP has not provided any. Given the choice of deleting a translation or leaving the TP, I chose to leave.
Which sucks, because they did provide good translations. I will try launchpad‘s translation infrastructure for gmult, and see how that goes. If it goes well, I might move xpad over to launchpad.
So translators, please visit the gmult translation page and translate away!
