    Well, i will

    - download the latest sources of the tree to update
    - compile them - because the make process does update the .PO file
    - run the msgmerge program to merge the po files and update the PO 
files of S2_1 and HEAD with the PO from S2_0,
    - and then use KBabel to modify the translation - if you have a 
fairly recent distribution instead of wim.

    To generate the diff patch to send to RT, just make a diff from the 
new PO against the last downloaded.
    You can do it with svn but i don't know exactly how.
