Well, I thought DamnedLies was just that - statistics. I didn't know
about that workflow. Anyway, gettext commands will not check for xml
syntax correctness, and we have (had?) some embedded xml in po
strings. I am not complaining, part of the reason for me to join was
to learn new things. I adopted docbook in my company for user manual,
for example. I just didn't expect the learning curve for git would be
steeper than svn.
