Make all .desktop-files translatable in Transifex
Currently one cannot translate the following desktop files through Transifex:
The tails-upgrader one can easily be added to the current workflow, but the other ones may either need to be moved to the main Tails repository, or have the desktop-translation functionality added to each of their own repository.
Discuss the best way to make them translatable, and implement it.

- Type of work changed from Discuss to Code
The following was decided during the meeting on December 2013:
None of the desktop file should be moved to any other repository. Each of them is best there they are.
All desktop files listed above should be made translatable using intltool. How to make use of intltool in each affected repository differ due to different build systems.

Modern gettext is now able to extract translatable strings from .desktop files, and GNOME projects are switching from intltool to plain gettext.
