A stated in the bug here [1], Calendar is crashing in some locales. The

ask for a string break for this branch of calendar.

The main reason for asking the break is that Calendar can not change the
date of a any event in some locales, and crashes, render the application
almost completely useless. This would continue for the entire 3.16.x cycle,
leaving distro like Fedora 22 using a broken version of Calendar.

It seems important enough and it's just one string which is pretty
trivial, so here's +1 from i18n. Only one more to go.

+  priv->mask = _("%d/%m/%y");

If this comment is aimed only at translators, you may want to start
the comment with "Translators: …" to make it more obvious to them.
