It is fine to use %n$ in translated strings as long as gettext is enabled only on systems that have a sufficiently capable printf and these formats are not used in the source code. But you can't have this string: "Splitting a commit while rebasing branch '%2$s' on '%3$s'." neither in the template nor in the translation, because the numbers must begin at 1 (and must be used without gaps). -- Hannes -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
