It would be easier on the reviewers if you could split out such
search&replace changes as s/benutzt/verwendet/ into a separate patch.

I'm not sure though which one would be more error-prone.  As it stands,
it's very tiring to review because of the very similar s/// changes, and
I am unlikely to spot any other change or mistake in a message that
undergoes the substitution.  With my proposal, I'd just skip reviewing
the s/// patch :-)

[No, don't change it for this patch; not worth the splitting effort.]

Not new, but they sound a bit strange to me.  Perhaps "kann nicht *beim*
Wechseln von Zweigen verwendet werden"?

Not new either, but also took a second reading.  Maybe "muss an erster
Stelle stehen"?

I think in this case it would sound nicer if you used the "Die Option
--dirty kann nicht mit Versionen verwendet werden" pattern instead of
the "inkompatibel" one.

... " verwendet werden"!

Typo in --no-exClude-standard.  (It was in the old version, too.)

If you were curious as to the point of the message (even in English):
it's only triggered by format-patch.
