Hmm, yes, I can't seem to ever get those quite right. I have been
meaning to figure out why I can't get test building the manual page
translations to work locally, but haven't quite got around to it yet,
so I don't get to test that my translation is correct before I push it.

Perhaps it would be possible to set up some kind of automatic nightly
builds that could figure out who last edited the file that fails the
build, and e-mail the contact address (which in this case would be me)
so that it can be corrected as early as possible?

Only for the manual page translations, since the angle bracket magic is
used to represent the manual page formatting.
