Hi, Sophie,

regarding 16 and 18, I think these are important or even most important

The 18 is the crucial one and should be tried in a separate world, with an
extra instance of Pootle to test what really happens. Without testing this
with real world examples it should not be introduced.

As with 16, I do think it might be important if I understand correctly how
gettext functions are working (and script using these commands, like
pomigrate2 etc.). In Slovenian and probably other languages same English
strings are translated sometimes differently. Some languages use cases, so
same word that has one form in English has several forms in other
languages. Also, some words in English have different meanings/translations
in other languages depending on context. By the change in 16 I fear that
the translation systems will offer or even automatically use the first
available translation of the English string and not offer a fuzzy string
for translators to check if translation is right (i.e. it will not make
difference between different translations of same English string that is
now defined by this part of po file).

As I am using my own translation systems, using basic Translate Toolkit
commands and scripts so I am ready to try your testing po sets on my
translation memory to see, what happens.

Also, the LO version, if this goes through, should be decided in advance,
5.4 for sure is not the one for this.

Hi all,

I invite all of you to have a read to that message from Caolan, it's a
discussion, so please share your concerns, your solutions, your views :)

For those who translates out of Pootle, msgctxt is to be removed, if you
need them, just tell me how you use it.

Thanks a lot in advance,
