[Xfce-i18n] Fw: Re: Tx seems to degrade po files (midori)

Hmm, I noticed another issue.
Current pot file of midori on Tx has 570 strings but exact number of strings is 571.
And Tx drops the string from uploaded correct po files.

The lost one is as follows (This is not newest string):
#. i18n: The local date a feed was last updated
#: ../extensions/feed-panel/feed-panel.c:399
#, c-format
msgctxt "Feed"
msgid "Last updated: %s."
msgstr ""

As far as I confirmed, only this string has "msgctxt" field in the pot.
IMHO, Tx doesn't support msgctxt and drop strings which include it.

At first this is a side effect by the problem we had yesterday when po
files were removed during the stats refresh and not re-added. Secondly
this is also a bit midori's fault, because it's pot file is broken
(missing files in POTFILES.in) and it should use the generated pot
file from git.

I'll fix the first one once I've figured out what is going wrong.
Christian should fix POTFILES.in, remove the pot files from git and
change the Tx midori settings to generate a pot file or notify me to
do it for him (that'll also notify him when the pot file generation is
