RE: build breakages: Make a fuss

Although it would be great if you sent emails to the project-specific
mailing lists telling them about these problems (or maybe add them to a
relevant bugzilla) these are not part of meta-gnome-desktop so they are not
as critical. However, I bet some people will fix them just because they have
seen your email. Well done.

I heard that the fileroller maintainer knows about this and feels the patch
is inappropriate for his own setup. It's annoying though.

Sounds important. Please make a fuss.

Is this recent? Or is it just that the jp translator keeps making the same
mistakes. Anyway, again it's important.

Well done. Thanks.
