no, not at all. You're only about to cause some unnecessary work for yourself, 
which is what everyone would rather like to avoid.

Andi talked about "the stable branch", i.e. which SVN branch you should commit 
changes on. And in that page, read the first sentences where the page talks 
about SVN:

Commits go to the mailing list, hence it is common to discuss commits on the 
mailing list as well. No need to feel offended for anyone, but that's just 
how it is when you commit something. You're very welcome to commit your 
translation change now on the stable branch in de.po.
