Plural forms are not always handled correctly

Bug Description

I have noticed that on several GNOME packages where upstream is 100 % translated the corresponding translation on Hardy lacks translations for a few strings.

It is not that those strings are not translated, but rather that sometimes their plural forms are not being handled correctly, I guess. What I mean is that the translations are there, but Launchpad does not seem to pick up one of the plural forms, which is listed as empty.

Here are some examples:


Gedit (seems to have been solved there now, but the packaged strings are still empty):

This is more likely to be some sort of packaging issue. For instance, you can see how we actually have a plural form message:

msgid "Modified in {1}"
msgid_plural "Modified in {1} ({0})"

when in and we can see:

msgid "Modified in {1}"

msgid "Modified in {1} ({0})"

(i.e. two separate messages).

Having checked now, I can confirm this is an issue in f-spot package: it's not shipping a PO template. For the fix to get to Launchpad Translations, f-spot needs to be fixed to include a PO template, and needs to be rebuilt.
