But we have a tool to check formatting strings for translations, namely
GNU msgfmt with the -c option. The idea is that requiring voting, someonw
will have run msgfmt -c on the file. But that depends on how confident we
are in msgfmt -c being correct. On the other hand, requiring restart of
the soak month just because of a bug in a .po formatting string would be
very paranoid. But if people don't like this, I can drop it. The most
important thing is to be able to fix typos in messages (see my last commit
to sv.po:-)...
