My view of people in FLP is that we are not a very
IT/technical skillful group. When I have been in a need for
solving technical matters around translation of docs or
websites recently, I think the most helpful with the weblate
configuration side would be Jean-Baptiste Holcroft
(, maybe also
Francois Andreu
( with more
general infrastructure things (repositories, scripts etc.).

My (perhaps not very clean) understanding is that websites
have a repository of relevant pot and po files
(, such repository
is used by Weblate somewhat automatically to pull and push
files from/to translation. Weblate's documentation could be
clearer -

I'm sorry for this not very convincing advice.
