[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug#881889: shadow: Please switch from gnome-doc-utils to pure gettext

Hi again,

I figured just switching to itstool might be the most straight forward
solution and fortunately for someone as lazy as me I found that
apparently fedora has already done that via a patch!


I tried building the debian package with this patch included,
Unfortunately the result isn't perfect.
For example when looking at the de version of login(1) manpage about
half of the longer chunks of text did not get translated (unlike in the
original package).

I assume the problem might be some trivial formatting issue where
itstool might be more picky to find a match. Would be awesome if someone
familiar with the translation infrastructure here could chime in on how
it works and what might be the problem!
