15# This is the copyright holder that gets inserted into the header of the
16# $(DOMAIN).pot file. Set this to the copyright holder of the surrounding
17# package. (Note that the msgstr strings, extracted from the package's
18# sources, belong to the copyright holder of the package.) Translators are
19# expected to transfer the copyright for their translations to this person
20# or entity, or to disclaim their copyright. The empty string stands for
21# the public domain; in this case the translators are expected to disclaim

25# This is the email address or URL to which the translators shall report
26# bugs in the untranslated strings:
27# - Strings which are not entire sentences, see the maintainer guidelines
28# in the GNU gettext documentation, section 'Preparing Strings'.
29# - Strings which use unclear terms or require additional context to be
30# understood.
31# - Strings which make invalid assumptions about notation of date, time or
32# money.
33# - Pluralisation problems.
34# - Incorrect English spelling.
35# - Incorrect formatting.
36# It can be your email address, or a mailing list address where translators
37# can write to without being subscribed, or the URL of a web page through
38# which the translators can contact you.
41# This is the list of locale categories, beyond LC_MESSAGES, for which the
42# message catalogs shall be used. It is usually empty.
