According to a quick (hence not exhaustive) search i my mail archive,
the last time we communicated was in March 2010. So when Xabier proposed
himself last May, it appear that I failed to point  him to you i.e. the
curent maintainer as I usually do possibly because it was a long time
since I had recieved a .po from you.

Now that put me between a rock and a hard place. Obviously I don't speak
a word of Basque. So I don't really have any mean to know who to trust. 

So if I rephrase: there is several basque dialects and the one used by
Xabier is uncommon or rather the one used by Iñaki and you is more

Is there country/area descriptor that people use to differentiate
between the dialects? This way we could make every one happy.
