Bug#258327: xgettext seems to overquote sh strings
When asked to extract the following line:
INVALID_BASENAME=$(gettext 'Invalid basename: %s.\n')
xgettext produce the following entry in the pot:
msgid "Invalid basename: %s.\\n"
It looks like there is a \ too much. This is at least disorienting for
translators. Why should it be treated different from the C equivalent?
An example can be found here:
I think this is an upstream bug, but I'm not 100% sure. Moreover, since I
failed to find the firstname.lastname@example.org archive list, I prefere to go for
the safer way an use the Debian BTS.
Thanks a lot, Mt.
