I will be making this change in Makefile.common at some point in the
next 24 hours.  (Simply put, we're changing the standard xml2po option
from "-e" to "-k".)  I will be updating POT and PO files for some but
not all documents -- probably the following modules only:

release-notes
install-guide
about-fedora
readme
readme-burning-isos
homepage
example-tutorial
documentation-guide
jargon-buster
translation-quick-start-guide

It is up to any other documents' maintainers to do a "make pot po" and
then commit the new POT/PO in their module(s) to update the message
content.
