My recommendation would be either

1) Set up an autobuild server and test autobuild.sh that way rather than
trying to run the script directly. The script has a clear warning that it is
only expected to be run via autobuild server. If that generates changes to the
autobuild.sh script I'll be happy to review them.

2) If you don't want to set up an autobuild server, then just ignore autobuild.sh.

The virt-manager.pot being changed on every build can be avoided by removing
the pot file from git like Dan suggested. I'll just need to tweak the
transifex setup and alter my release process, but it should be simple enough.
