Bug Description

The fix for bug #924628 regresses support for translations being imported by launchpad. From the email I received after the latest upload:

  We were unable to import the file because of errors in its format:

  No header found in this pofile

  If you use gettext, you can check your file for correct formatting with
  the 'msgfmt -c' command. Please fix any errors raised by msgfmt and
  upload the file again. If you check the file and you don't find any
  error in it, please look for an answer or file a question at

  For your convenience, you can get the file you uploaded at:

So we need to work out getting a proper header attached to the generated .pot files as well, using the dates from the original apt-all.pot.
