 I know, therefore I've been putting aside a lot of time to do it the
last days. I've got translations for all the core components of xfce
almost completed now, I've just got one question:

In one .po I saw the following header:

# Swedish translations for xfce4-panel package.
# Copyright (C) 2002-2005 The Xfce development team.
# This file is distributed under the same license as the xfce4-panel package.
# Joakim Andreasson <joakim.andreasson at gmx.net>, 2003-2004.

Another one looks like this:

# Swedish messages for xfcalendar package.
# Copyright (C) 2003-2005 Mickaël Graf and The Xfce development team.
# This file is distributed under the same license as the xfcalendar package.
# Johan Hammar <johan.hammar at swipnet.se>, 2003.
# Magnus Berg <berg.magnus at bredband.net>, 2005.

According to the .pot files they should look like this:

# This file is distributed under the same license as the PACKAGE package.

So my question is, should just the original author of the translations
be added to the header or should all authors be added?

I'm right now checking the .po files with msgfmt, and after that I'll
test them in xfce 4.2.2 running in qemu.
