I think I heard about you..:-)

(for others, this is a little pun, here: Beatrice activity is very
visible in italian l10n as she's sending tons of bug reports for
various translations....)

Yeah, the POT file being a generated file, some developers prefer not
storing such files in a VCS. I personnally disagree with that as it
makes the life of translators more complicated but I usually avoid
arguing too much about that.

For aptitude, you indeed need to run "./configure" in the top-level
tree and then "make from the doc directory should, among other magic
stuff, regenerate the POT file.
