Thanks for the reply.

Like we have #fuzzy, a tag can be created similarly so that once approved by a community we can lock that strings for further editing.

At tool level it is difficult to ask everybody. I accept tool can be created to handle such things but once the tag is being incorporated in the gettext format, everybody will do implement it automatically, hence good for the translation community.

For translation perspective, it will add value in the gettext format that is currently a popular format in open source world.

Although I understand the needs, I have no idea how gettext can help this. Isn't it a PO editors' (such as KBabel, GTranslator, PO Mode, Zanata, etc) job, rather than gettext?

Could you elaborate a little further what you want gettext to do?

There is a great need to provide facility in .po file to lock the strings for further editing. It is always very difficult for a coordinator or commmitter of any project to track change of all the translation again. So there should always be a facility so that a coordinator or a community can lock the strings so that file can be translated/editable only for new or fuzzy strings.

The benefit of this facility is great. Assume, if one community thinks that present translation of 'gedit' is fine for their locale, the community can lock all the strings or some strings where they are having consensus that these are fine. In this process the usability will be increased much and review will become very easier.
