Bug Description

While translating Ground Control I have discovered a couple or unrelated comments appering in the PO template, while for some messages the comments were missing:

Missleading comments:

When the translation includes a couple of %s, it would be nice to hint translators about their usage and how the final translation will look like.
Missing comments:

Also, in many langauges the translation of None depends on the context, and it would be nice to see a hint regarding the context where this message is used:

I had no idea the comments in the code actually went into the translation files. Huh.

Yep... the comment block just before a gettext call will be interpreted by xgettext as a „translation” comment...

It is a nice feature if you want to help translators... but sometimes it can be a real pain :)

You should try to move the comment one line above .. as xgettext will concatenate all previous comments blocks
