Weird. I used the latest .pot for Mailman, so the headers _should_ be  
correct. I can't see how msgmerge can have changed that: it only  
matches translations to original text. If the templates need to be  
there in the installed system, I'll have to fix this. <sigh>  But I'd  
still like to know how it happened. :(

Who should add such entries? Should I? If so, please tell me what I  
should do.

Is this analagous with adding a language code to the ALL_LINGUAS line  
in configure.in or configure.ac ?
