[Openstack-i18n] Horizon translation check site for Kilo

I've been thinking about Akihiro's request and it seems to me one of the
key challenges is finding the infrastructure to support this testing.
Maybe we should avoid the need for infrastructure entirely.

I wonder if it would be more straightforward to enable the translators to
update a local, devstack based version of Horizon by running a script to
copy in-progress translations to their local Horizon.  Akihiro has shared
some of the tooling he has used to manage this.  I'm thinking of turning
this into a script that could be used after setting up Horizon to
automatically download, compile, and configure an updated translation.

Would this be a useful approach for the translation community?
