@Marco: The issue was caused by the fact that LP used an older (xenial) version of gettext. So as soon as they upgrade, it should be possible to drop the workaround. Can't tell if they have done that yet; easiest to ask Colin or William.

The bad strings are: %d minute ago %d minutes ago %d hour ago %d hours ago %d week ago %d weeks ago %d month ago %d months ago %d year ago %d years ago They seem to be correct, but they are not accepted for some reason.
