I just uploaded to my HG account on mozilla server the latest iteration of pontoon.

You can see it here:

And review the last four changsets which is my work on top of what Fred did.

- I added index.php to experiment with the ways it may work.
- Minor fixes to pontoon.php
    - made functions static to satisfy PHP 5.2/5.3
    - added project name as a content to <meta/> to be able to recognize the project via pontoon
- added silme support to server (0.8 is preferred ATM)
- added ./push action to server and combined it with silme to write .po files from the data from pontoon
- added ability to select locale user is localizing to
- added ability to read project name to client
- added ability to store original entity value to send it as ID (for gettext, we may want to change it for L20n and others)
- added "send" button and code to communicate with the server and submit the localized data via AJAX

In result I think I closed the loop:

- You can create a PHP app that uses pontoon
- You can use pontoon to localize it
- You can send it to the server
- the server can write it to .po file
- the PHP app can use the .po file to show localized content
