@Sergio:  Here is a comment in one of the strings that have "%5s"

#. TRANSLATORS: Clouds percentages are aligned to the right in the
#. tooltip, the %5s are needed for that and are used both for
#. rounded and unrounded values.

@Harald: pt_BR is done.

>> Hi,
>> First the bad news: Although I didn't want to change anything
>> code-related, I still did. For you translators, this means a bit more work
>> (just minor adaptations to two or three existing messages and about 3 new
>> messages to translate).
>> Now the good news: It seems I've found a rather easy way to fix the
>> timezone problems people have been reporting. Instead of doing complicated
>> timezone calculations (which I wanted to delay for 0.8.4), I decided to let
>> the plugin work in another timezone by simply setting an environment
>> variable. This makes it possible to choose any location, and the plugin will
>> show all times using the timezone of that location.
>> The summary window subtitle now contains the current local time at the
>> location, which gives you a good reference for the other times. As a bonus,
>> you can use the plugin as a world clock ;-)
>> The TZ environment variable should be available in POSIX-compliant
>> systems, see
>> http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/TZ-Variable.html. Although
>> all my tests on my GNU/Linux system have shown nice results, I hope these
>> changes do not break the plugin for users of other systems. If no timezone
>> is provided, the plugin will usually fallback to using the local timezone,
>> which results in the behaviour we had until now. I found that if the entry
>> is invalid, UTC will be used.
>> Sorry for breaking string freeze, but I think it is worth it. The upcoming
>> release will certainly not happen before the 18th of February. If you find
>> any problems with the strings, please report them in bug #9770. For other
>> problems please file a new bug.
>> I have regenerated all po files, but if you have uncommitted translation
>> work, please follow the instructions for translators in the README. Also,
>> please check your po files before uploading them so they do not break
>> compilation. Information how to do this is available in the README, too.
