There's some preparatory work to be done to make CGit translatable.
Patches to do this would be welcome, but I don't think anyone currently
has plans to work on this.

At a minimum, we need patches to:

- Mark user-visible strings in the source as translated and generate
  translation catalogs

- Integrate translations into the build and install process so that they
  can be found and loaded when handling a request

- Extract preferred languages from the request and initialise gettext
  with the most preferred language that is available
