While it's no longer relevant for this change, xgettext does seem to put the strings in the order in which they appear in the source code. I say "seem to" because I don't have a canonical source to back me up, nor did I check the xgettext sources, but I did generate a POT file to verify the comment. There's another instance of such a comment where a sentence is split to avoid leaking markup, the markup is actually critical to the proper functioning of the code in that case. So there's ready material if someone wants to dig into this. _______________________________________________ gnome-i18n mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-i18n
