I don't really understand what, in my bug report, can be taken as
rude. I have two templates for sending translation updates: one is
quite long and pedantic and basically says "you should have called for
a translation update but here's the french translation anyway" and
another one is the above one which is mostly meant for cases....where
I don't want to be fingerpointing the maintainer.

Maybe should I have a third template for cases where "the maintainer
didn't formally call for a translation update but I don't want to
appear as fingerpointing him|her"....which was indeed the case for
this gitolite update.

So, maybe you think there was irony because of our past
miscommunication history....but, really, there wasn't. This bug report
is meant for what it is: sending you the update of the French
translation. I was not expecting it to hurt your feelings in any way.
