That's a bit of an understatement ;) First, people pull the file they
translate directly from damned lies the same way they do for all other
modules in GNOME. I have no way of imposing these restrictions on
people. Second, I am the person the integrates all the GNOME
translations from my entire team, suffice it to say that it is
somewhat inconvenient when a module requires special attention when
pulling the file or integrating. Third, I now already have a
translation, that is probably based on an old version and I still need
a way to integrate it.

I can't run the makepot thingy, because I don't have all the
dependencies. Could you e-mail me a fresh pot-file, then I can
msgmerge against that, and then integrate the result?

Please fix this module so that we can use standard tools and procedures.
