I would like to add a few translatable time format strings to
gnome-software to show the "Last checked: HH:MM" label in the updates page.

Would be great to have this in 3.12.

That's a lot of new strings. There is no way you could use
glib/gnome-desktop for this in 3.12?

Sure, could easily drop "Two days ago" and the like, these are just the
icing on the cake.

The minimum plan to implement this for 3.12 would need 1 regular
string: "Last checked: %s", and 3 time format strings:

  "%R", "%l:%M %p", "%e %B %Y"

Would it make sense to only mark "Last checked: %s" for translation and
leave the time format strings untranslated? I am not sure how much value
there is for translating the time format stuff anyway.

Given that many languages do not use the same time formats as en-US, I'd
say no to leaving them unmarked.

Also the real difference is between having to touch a translation file
and not having to touch it, so I'd say there is no much point in trying
to reduce the number of strings.

As we still have two weeks, I'd say 1/2 from i18n.
(But next week I'll be a big "NO" stamp :))

Does that sound better? Could leave it for 3.14 as well if it sounds
like too much change in the last minute.
