Are you updating the pot file every time you change strings in your
source code? This is not the recommended workflow for GNOME
translation and you're giving bad habits to anyone you're pointing to
this file. Damned lies provides an up to date pot file for all modules
and ensures translations are never based on the wrong file.

I'm talking about non-Gnome projects; when there is a different recommended workflow that translators are used to, I would use that.

But to answer your question; no, I purposely don't update the .pot file every time I change a string. I only update the .pot file when I want to release new strings to translators, some time before a release.
