These were two entries from the file I started with, that contained only %-directives to printf. I sent a mail to the developer (Jim Meyering) and told him about the mistake [...] I remember now. You did well. [...] and marked the entry in the po file as obsolete. As I understand your letter, it is your recommendation to remove the entry completely in a case like this. Right? In my way of seeing things (which is not universal in GNU, should I say), PO files really pertain to translation teams, who do whatever they want with them. The only requirement I want to enforce is that PO files should not break the GNU distributions including them. A uniform presentation of PO files, for all teams, simplifies many things, and almost everybody nicely collaborated so far. My own feeling is that we should remove from a PO file those obsolete entries standing absolutely no chance of ever becoming useful, later. Of course, you may use obsolete entries for any purpose useful to you. -- François Pinard ``Vivement GNU!'' email@example.com Support Programming Freedom, join our League!
