There's now one more ITS implementation out there. gettext is the
standard library used for getting localized strings in GNU/Linux and
many other Unix-like systems. It supports dozens of input formats,
including programming languages, markup languages, and various other
file formats. All of its XML formats are now done through ITS, with a
couple of extension data categories:

es.html

The work was done by the gettext maintainer, Daiki Ueno. All I did was
cheer him on. Along with my itstool, we now have two implementations
that use PO files natively.

Just thought people would like to know that ITS is still spreading.
