Re: [Evolution-hackers] Evolution Errors

True.  I included the glade file to be helpful.  

What's the best form for these messages to be in?  They're in a CSV file
right now that I can easily convert to just about anything.  (Including
simplistic patches.)  But if the two sets of text are going to be
separate then maybe a patch isn't the best form at the moment.

(BTW -- using separate strings for the primary text and the secondary
text will certainly increase the number of strings to be translated and
may make context less clear.  Maybe they should continue to be long
