Translators currently download files one at the time.


Enabling this feature will save translators' time, helping team to build their translation memory, translators having slow internet connection, or translators working small multiple files of particular guide.

With the infrastructure freeze in effect and F13 GA on the way, it's understandable if we don't want to put this change in place right now. I think Dimitris' comment above indicates the translate.fp.o host would spend more time processing to make archives. But this change is needed for quite a few of the documentation modules since some of them have many dozens of PO files, which makes life harder for translators if they can't pull them all at one time.
