Erm, excuse me if I was a bit rushed, but added the category already 
based on previous positive feedback.


It contains 6 modules already, of which 5 have releases (so these are 
showing up the page above by default). These are now:

  - i18n module suite
  - localizer module suite
  - translation template extractor (previously extractor.php)
  - autolocale import
  - xliff tools

Jose and Roberto are in talks to split out some functionality into 
standalone modules shared between the i18n and localizer module suites, 
so the differentiators will better stand out and collaboration is better 
supported. These modules will appear here too.
