This is indeed not a problem for PO readers/editors.
However, this is problematic when working in teams, when people are not using necessarily the same version of gettext, as running msgcat may yield different po files depending on the version, and thus producing non trivial diffs, even if no string has been modified.

This is likely to be the change of libunistring (gnulib) code bundled in the tarballs. Does this cause any problem for you?

I think PO readers should handle this transparently, i.e. both

msgid ""
"foo "
"bar"

and

msgid ""
"foo b"
"ar"

should be treated as a same string "foo bar".

Hi,

I noticed a change of behavior of msgcat between 0.18.1 and 0.18.2 after an upgrade of my Debian system (more precisely from Debian version 0.18.1.1-10 and 0.18.2.1-1).

What changed is the position of new lines for strings of manpages containing a tagged word (like B<word>) at about the end of the line.

Attached are a few examples showing original and translated strings suffering from this behavior.

  • gettext.0.18.1.po obtained from msgcat 0.18.1.1-10
  • gettext.0.18.2.po obtained from msgcat 0.18.1.2-1

both contain the same (logical) content.

Cheers,

Cédric
