Many thanks Abel for catching the CVS conflict.
The problem described at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=169386 does not persist
anymore and we are closing the issue.
Our mistake was with the interpretation of default variables such as
DEFAULT_ZONE. No such thing exists for countries apart from US and
Canada, and the translator comments are not helpful at all.
May I add something along the lines of the following translator comment
to the DEFAULT_xxx variables?
/* If the following variable does not apply to your country/airport,
simply replicate the msgid entry. Do not try to translate verbatim or
innovate, else you will create a greek tragedy. See
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=169386 for more. Even what you
put says DEFAULT_xxx, it's not anything default. It's an indication to
the program to keep it empty and unused. Sabes? */
