It doesn't work. So I'd say he started working on it, but didn't finish the

I don't know what you mean. The rule to generate POTFILES from
is right there in At least in my copy. I don't know what the
gnome-gettext.m4 stuff has to do with anything.

My objection to the patch isn't the content of the patch. It's the fact that
all other intltool features work without special gnome dependencies. The
implementation of the [type] feature should to be done in a way that works
fine for any package, even one that doesn't use gnome-gettext.m4.
