The reindex is almost finished, so quality should be restored to normal by now. If this is not the case then something else is wrong.

I think I can do that. Where should I put the projects/**/*.json files that are generated by the translatewiki export command? I guess in rPHTR Phabricator Translations at the root, just add a folder called /projects/?
