I can't promise that I'll always be available as a translator, but I 
will try to help out whenever time permits.

I know I should focus on linguist-qt4, but out of sheer curiousity, is 
there a way to take a look at the previous original string?  These four 
strings marked in bold looked like a proper translation, so I'm 
wondering what triggered their "fuzzy" state.

I figured that out, once linguist-qt4 became available on fylgia, but 
what about the checkmarks that are yellow instead of green?  I tried 
updating translations there, but they wouldn't change to green, unlike 
the question marks that turn into green checkmarks.

Well, as it seems, that English translator will be me, at least 
until/unless we have a native speaker willing to take over.  So, again, 
what should I do?
