No, I simply didn't know what the best approach was. I assumed that
they're stored in the CVS repo with the source. It appears as though
check-ins are done by people after the material is emailed by the
robot. I guess circumventing that flow could lead to a newer version
being replaced by an older one, though.

No, I'm fully conversant with GPL requirements :-)

It occurred to me after sending that email that perhaps the
translations are keyed off of the in-source text anyway, and that what
I assumed was hard coded was in fact not, and instead a call through a
service that looks things up appropriately. Excuse my naivety on this
