I know, but I can't do much about it.  There's a comment in
generate_template.sh explaining that, but (as commented on IRC), I
haven't been able to propagate it to messages.pot using -c=\;

Can you do that already in your translation ?  I'm not sure if it's
possible to translate the "s" string as an empty string.

Ok, removed.

I reworded one of these.  The other "you" look fine, but let me know if some
of them can be improved.

Also, I'm not sure how to rephrase it in this context:

  "it is recommended that you have ..."

Any suggestion?

Yes, they would.. :-(
