Sure? There have been made a lot of changes in existing entries in the
past. From time to time I did a "gmake update-po". This updated all *.po
files (here at home). These changed entries are then marked "fuzzy" in
the *.po files or "questionable" in a gui tool like kbabel.

But I only comitted "my" de.po". I guess this is the task of those who
started translations. With a gmake update-po they always can see what
has changed.
