Hmm, forgot to launch my magic script for this. Sorry.

Goddam. This is a known upstream bug in poedit, which I'm maintainer
for. I discovered that one after uploading the new release which has
this bug...:-(. Then I downgraded to a earlier version, but forgot to
put the package on hold and a further dist-upgrade reupgraded it..:-(
Looks like I now have to clean up that mess...:-(
> 3) You reverted the changes I made to the fr.po file's comment header.
Hmmm, wil look at it.

I do know these practice...:-)....but forgot to use them properly.
