Sorry about the tabs. Unfortunately, tab symbols are something badly
handled in the transifex web UI. I have found no easy way entering them
except by a keyboard shortcut (<ctrl>+<shift>+u+9), copying and pasting
from the original text has not the intended effect. I sometimes copy the
text into an editor and then back into the web form because that is easier.

For compiling and installing the plugin remember to set the path
correctly, otherwise the panel will not find any it. You need to use the
same install path as for the panel. If you're using the distribution
package of the panel, that will probably be:
./autorun.sh --prefix=/usr
