Re: Bug#725851: [BTS#725851] templates://fpc/{fp-compiler.templates.in} : Final update for English review

Sure, bu that needs changes to maintainers scripts, which I tend to

An alternative would be a comment telling translators to not translate
"Select manually" in the logn description.

However, your proposal is interesting, with an amendment I would propose:

Onstead of:

> # Translators: please leave ${otherchoices} untranslated
> __Choices: ${otherchoices}, Select manually
> Default: Select manually

I'd rather go for:

__Choices: ${otherchoices}, Select manually
Default: Select manually

With this, ${otherchoices} will not be included in the translatable material.
