Re: PO files headers and DL

What about this issue?

Is there any possibility to add headers to PO files? It could be possible, at least, to add this header just to es.po files? It woulb be very useful for me and for other translators/coordinators, and it is completely transparent for translations (just note the X-Generator header added by Kbabel or PoEdit).

Many thanks and Merry X-Mas

Headers can be split in two (or more) lines? I this case, how could a bash script get the full path?

Thanks for your comment :)

This sounds like an interesting idea.

We need to realise that tools can wrap the lines in the path, and that a
simple grep might not work correctly. Something like this is possible:

msgstr ""
"X-Location: gnome-control-center/"

So the script might need a bit more intelligence than simple grep.

Keep up the good work!
