Description Siebrand Mazeland 2012-05-07 23:01:05 UTC
This extension uses some shorts strings and terminology that may be hard to translate without additional information. This is especially true for undocumented parameters. Please document messages[1] in the 'qqq'
language, or directly in[2].

Providing accurate message documentation leads to higher quality translations.
This will be especially try for strings like these[3,4]

I've reminded everyone in the team about this and John has added some context messages. Is this solved with that or are there still problems currently?

Thanks a lot for the prompt follow-up, Lydia. Nice work. I especially like the long term actions.
