Yep, it's much better. I was forced to think a little bit about
your "program name" explanation. Why do you not just add
"such as schroot-listmounts, schroot-releaselock" to the comments?
(Are there other possibilities?)
So the translator does not need to check all possible combinations related
to the gender or whatever whether it matchs or not.

#. TRANSLATORS: %1% = chroot name
#: dchroot/dchroot-chroot-config.cc:126
#, boost-format
msgid "%1% chroot (dchroot compatibility)"
msgstr "%1% chroot (dchroot compatibility)"

What's the chroot name? The path of the chroot'ed directory or a name supplied
by the user for this chroot?

Maybe you can explain the terminology a little bit at the beginning of

I will provide a German translation soon. I hope nobody started yet.

PS: You included the generated API documentation, which makes this archives
large. I assume you normally do not release it.
