Hi Tuomas,

However, this has never (AFAIK) been the case for LO strings in TDF
Weblate, where strings just get replaced with no indication of what was
there before. I've assumed that there's perhaps some technical
limitation preventing the use of this feature, but perhaps Christian
could enlighten us?

Without having looked at the source to confirm, my first guess is that
it is due to our keyIDs.
At least for determining what strings are the same for
translation-propagation, weblate text the context of the string into
account, so for LibreOffice whenever a string is changed, the new
string will have a different context than the previous string, since
the keyID changes along with it.

Good catch, I guess tweaking weblate to work better with our workflow
in that regard will be quite helpful.
