Re: Emacs po-mode help request

I am putting the gettext list in Cc since the po-mode comes from there.
Also Bruno Haible is active on and he probably can help too.

I have checked the po-mode+ code and indeed the po-auto-replace-revision-date 
function from po-mode is overridden by po-auto-update-header, which does seem 
to update the following fields:


There is a setting for po-mode+ that you can modify in the Emacs customization:
(defcustom po-auto-update-header t
  "*Automatically update the header.  Value is nil, t, or ask."
  :type '(choice (const nil)
                 (const t)
                 (const ask))
  :group 'po)

So, maybe instead of trying to modify the code, you could first install 
po-mode+.el and then make sure it is activated?
