Bug Description

When building compiz, there are some warnings complaining about po files. Using intltool 0.41.1-2
Below are a list of the warnings followed by a link to the file it's complaining about.

core/po/af.po:5: warning: header field `Language' should start at beginning of line
http://cgit.compiz.org/compiz/core/tree/po/af.po

core/po/uk.po: warning: PO file header fuzzy warning: older versions of msgfmt will give an error on this
core/po/uk.po:8: header field `Project-Id-Version' still has the initial default value
http://cgit.compiz.org/compiz/core/tree/po/uk.po

core/po/xh.po:5: warning: header field `Language' should start at beginning of line
http://cgit.compiz.org/compiz/core/tree/po/uk.po

core/po/zu.po:5: warning: header field `Language' should start at beginning of line
http://cgit.compiz.org/compiz/core/tree/po/zu.po

These warnings are coming from msgfmt (GNU gettext tools). Eg. try "msgfmt -o /dev/null -cv af.po " and you'll see the same warning. It's a bug in GNU gettext most likely.

Changed in intltool:
status: New → Invalid

You are right, msgfmt throws the same warning. I will move to watching the bug on gnu.org/bugs. Thanks!

I came across the same problem. But surely it can't be that this bug isn't fixed since Oct 2010 ?! Any idea please?
