Automation needed for telling translators about page changes
With the removal of the cms-diff app, and its replacement by django-cms-history, the options to notify website translators of changes shrunk considerably.
Currently, website translators rely on me running my Firefox plugin once a day. The plugin will not catch all kinds of changes, and will only find changes on pages that it knows about.
I suggest that, until there will be any kind of usable diffs (if ever), we have a pop-up dialog that opens when you try to publish an English page.
It could have a checkbox 'needs translation', that is checked by default, and an obligatory comment field (if the checkbox is checked).
The comment would not need to be saved, only be put into the diff email.
This would ensure that translators know what changed, even without a full diff, and that editors cannot forget about the people 'downstream' (which is what currently happens in most cases).
(obviously, I've got no idea how and if at all that could work, though...)
