build of etch release-notes from svn, conflicts with sgml vs po: ro, pt, ru

Dear russian, portuguese and romanian l10n team,

During the build of etch release notes, it appears that some of your
translations are performered in the po files, some other in the SGML.

Please see below what you should perform to update the po file before
the SGML can be safely removed.

Anyway SVN doesn't make the difference between a tag and a

As spotted by Rhonda, some sgml files are stored in the (etch) SVN
together with their po source, as a consequence :
$ svn status | grep -v ^?
 M      ro/release-notes.ro.sgml
 M      pt/release-notes.pt.sgml
 M      ru/release-notes.ru.sgml

Unfortunately, they cannot be removed straight away from the SVN,
because the translations are not consistent in PO and SGML :

Please see the diff between the SGML present on the SVN and the SGML
generated from the PO :

Then update the PO so that no translated string gets lost when the SGML
will be removed from the SVN.

The right place to change the po is :

Thanks in advance.
