Normal comments duplicated if they are in the .pot file

Bug Description

If the .pot file has normal comments (the ones marked as '# '), the .po file inherit it and when Rosetta exports the .po file again, the comment is there twice.

After playing with msgmerge, seems like they ignore that kind of comments from the .pot file as soon as the msgset exists in the .po file.

We should fix our code to do something like that.

Does this affect the web UI, or just the exported files?
For exports, is it just a matter of not using the "normal" comment from the template if one exists in the PO file?

After some code checks I think it's an issue with the exported files.

Yes, the solution is just export the comment from the template if there is no comments from the PO file. So the PO file should override the ones from the template.

This seems to have been fixed (I tested locally with the refactoring branch), in at least RF 5199, but probably even earlier.

It was fixed in RF 5199, I fixed that or at least I remember changing some code related with that
