Det kom ett brev till koordinatorlistan, som bl.a. handlade om
huruvida man borde ha med en referens till <LL@li.org>, t.ex. i
utskriften från "--help".  Vad tycker ni, skall vi ha det som standard
för de svenska översättningarna?

Yes, it would be quite useful.  This is my own opinion.  But I should be
honest enough to say that Richard Stallman disagrees with me on this.

Recently, GNU standards have been amended so --help output should
terminate with a short sentence telling where to report bugs.  Moreover,
I perceive translation teams are *free* to translate messages according
to the politics or habits they set for themselves.

If a team choose to translate the bug report address into two sentences
instead of one, the second being like what you suggest above, I will
just applaud to that decision.  However, as far as I'm representing GNU,
I may just not say that GNU wants this systematically.  Each team may
have to decide for itself on this.
