Oh thanks, I only looked into the debian one (Vcs-Git).

Using the appropriate domain name (i.e. s/cwidget/libcwidget3/ in i18n.h
in order to get “#define CWIDGET_DOMAIN "libcwidget3") does the trick,
thanks again!

That would indeed be prettier. I'm not an Autotools wizard at all, and
doubt I will be able to propose a proper patch myself for that though.

Agreed: I'm willing to prepare an NMU now and send it to DELAYED-4
(rationale: freeze is soonish, this NMU has been announced a fair amount
of time already without any opposition from the maintainer), and get as
much other translations as possible in the next two weeks in order to
send another NMU once this one reaches testing.

Thanks, I'll include it too.

I already amended the French translation in that regard, and will double
check other translations before the upload.

I'll prepare everything I can, and send an nmudiff to the bug report
today unless something else pops up, but am totally fine if you prefer
to upload it yourself, eventually with more proper fixes (just say the
word, I'm also available on IRC).
