Yesterday I thought if we chould make it more clear in the manual
developer part what these files are, how to deal with them, where they
originate and that they should not be included in the patches.

There might already be a "translating Guix" section, so we could just
extend that and add a few lines wrapped around the link. I can imagine
it to be in the 8.3 (?) section where you are advised to check things
before sending in the patch.
This applies to any model we might or might not adapt in the future,
wether email or not, the translation files will be there and some people
might not know what to do with them.
