Bug Description

Binary package hint: computer-janitor

Bug 621723 complains that the new PEP 3101 style format strings, i.e. {foo} cause problems for translators because gettext, and thus Launchpad, do not recognize these strings. This means that the content checking currently done for %(foo)s strings would not be done, and UI can break. %s strings are horrible and must die, but they can't until gettext and LP support the new formats. dpm (David Planella) will file an upstream bug on that.
