(I thought gen-file.pl "broke" but the contents in "unstable" file is already "broken")

the patch restores content broken by script used on i18n.d.o, perhaps
  debian-l10n/dl10n.git:/dl10n-check 769-770 which invoke 666-.

other way to fix is disable these lines;

I chose handling in webwml side in the patch
 as I'm not sure (how and if) the file is used in other places;

if it is not used on any other places,
 or who use on other scripts are smart enough to adjust their scripts,
 adjusting i18n.d.o side is a right way, as it does extra handling.

you are whining since before saying like, my skills are ... , or ..., for a long time, 
and will continue to do so in the future :(,
that never generate anything positive for the future, and stuck there forever.

do not run away from doing tests, otherwise you'll acquire no skills..
no current webmasters have such ones after all.

then you, as a DD/webmasters,
 should do thousands of test against as many as possible instead.
maybe you should get perl people, at least for review

no need to CC me :-)
