Hi Jeremy,

Ack, and +1 from translations. If the actual shortcut in the code
changes, documentation and translations need to reflect that change to
be correct.

Sounds sensible too. However, that will break quite a lot of existing
translations. In order to avoid it, if you apply this change, could you

1. Apply the s/Meta/Super substitution to the .pot file and all the .po
files in the precise-translations docs branch (both in the msgid and
msgstr fields)
2. Merge the precise-translations branch with trunk, so that Launchpad
can import the new translations (*)

Let me know if we can help with any of this.


(*) I've noticed Launchpad changes the directory layout on the
precise-translations branch to be a flat listing of PO files, which
means the merge probably won't work. Then I'd simply suggest fetching
the files from the branch, putting them in the right place in the trunk
branch and committing.
