in the most up-to-date messages.pot appears the following line :
msgid "Edit Options"
however, in the parsed HTML page the caption of the button reads "Unsubscribe or edit options". Which one is correct?
And a bit off-topic: IMHO, the names of the languages at the listinfo and roster pages should be in the national language - in contrast to the admin section where they should be in the interface language (the admin should know which languages he enables, shouldn't he?)
The idea is that the visitor can change the language of the interface to his convenience, but once the names appear in some other lingua - how should he guess? Extreme example: a mailing list where all discussions flow in Volapük however the owner enables his diverse audience enjoy interface in several other languages - Danish (dansk), French (français), Thai (ไทย), Russian (русский). Furthermore, he himself is from Japan so the default is Japanese. A visitor coming to the site would have no idea how to make it readable and even if he manages to find the combo-box, what would he select? All language names are in Japanese!!
