The build of gnome-shell 3.28.0-0ubuntu4 was not sufficient to fix this.
The POT file without javascript comments was imported, but LP still
complained about the PO files for the affected languages.

The upstream PO files have those javascript comments too. As a test I
took the upstream Czech file, removed the javascript comments, and
uploaded manually. Imported without errors.

Next thought: Was the first failure about timing, i.e. did LP use the
info in the old template to validate the PO files? To test that I took
the upstream Serbian file and uploaded it manually without removing the
javascript comments. Imported without errors.

Conclusion: A no-change rebuild ought to be sufficient to fix it in
gnome-shell for the other affected languages.

  to manually translate them on launchpad, I get this error: "number of

  They seem to be correct, but they are not accepted for some reason.
