Hello (I am the current french translator for the Release Notes),
The french translation is setup like this because the previous
translator (Denis Barbier) did it like that. Only the .sgml file is
authoritative here, the .po file is only for convenience and it makes it
very easy to update the translation in this way. For instance, when the
paragraph about german umlauts was commented out, it was simply an
update for the po file.
