Not a maintainer, but..

It's certainly the case for evolution on a couple of the branches:
on one of them almost 40% (of 6000 strings) of the po file was 
placenames. Many of them (but not all) overlapped with the 
placenames in the weather applet. Hmm, let me look. 

HEAD looks very little different. "Aarhus" appears 49% of the
way into the file; and "Zurich" completes the list at 84% of
the way in (by line count rather than strings). There is also
a set of world countries (most of them) and a lot of time zones.
And our old favourites, "Shallow snow grains", "Freezing precipitation",
"Drifting fog", "Blowing volcanic ash", "Thunderous sandstorm"
and "Funnel cloud in the vicinity".

You know, for 2.8, there is a _really_ good case for getting
together with gweather and pulling these out into a library;
because these weather ones and half the placenames are all in 
gweather as well, so they are getting translated twice over.

I'm looking at HEAD because that's what the status table says.
I'm actually confused whether it's going to come off HEAD or
off a branch.
