No, that should be much more recent. Pootle hasn't been used after 4.1.0 
since all the 4.1.x releases did not contain string changes. But 4.0.0 
and 4.1.0 were fully translated in Pootle (maybe 4.1.0 was updated only 
on demand since we didn't have many string changes between 4.0.0 and 4.1.0).

It didn't come to a halt per se; simply, new releases haven't brought 
string changes and 4.2.0 will be the first release where we need to 
import a significant number of string changes.

Due to code changes, 4.2.0 will need some special work: we moved some 
strings, and Pootle won't be able to recognize they were moved. But its 
built-in translation memory will probably hep and suggest the previous 
translation if people are willing to review.

So, would you be able to export (I assume) Dutch from Pootle, pass it 
through GSIcheck, check that it passes and document this step? I 
remember having troubles at this step when I tried last year, but (even 
if I've helped with translations since the pre-Apache era) GSIcheck was 
never part of my routine.
