Fixed, Alan. I've added you as the maintainer of the language.

BTW, our "Join" pages need some serious updating to be useful for new
translators. Only the Translation Quick Start Guide is really useful, but it
needs some serious updating. Only by having good welcome pages we'll stop losing
new contributors.

Even if a string's translation is the same as the original string, it should be
"translated" by copying it to msgstr. This is what the tools (every tool, not
just the WUI) expect to find there. With en_GB this is probably too much, but it
seems that GNOME does this as well:
