Yes, you are right... en_US, then :-)

This is the word! Merge! :-)

That is the case!
We are checking previous QSO to fill the new ones.

There is a list and a free-text box where the user can type the
satellite name, to alow the users to enter the sat name... there are new
sats in the air every several months... so more sats than KLog reviews! :-)

Understood and agree.

You are right.

It seems that it's all done! :-)
I will check how the updates work on the code and send a new email to
debian-i18n for other languages.

Thank you so much Justin.
