Sure. This is something I explicitely said to translators when the
branching happened.

However, some may have forget this..or simply missed it (being sure to
get all translators attention is still a challenge).

Indeed, for the future, given that there should be no reason to do
string changes in the sarge branch, except on very special occasions,
I think I'll ask translators to NEVER update their files there. I will
probably stop running l10n-sync on it.

those from sarge for identical strings.
