If you find something unclear or missing in the README, please let me
know.  See also Jean-Charles's gitrux, that he recently sent on this

This is strange you encounter bad committishes errors, as (I suppose)
_you_ have written this committishes in translated files, so even if
they are not valid committishes in, they should be valid
committishes in your local repository copy.

You must have done something wrong with the committishes.  There are two
ways to fix them and make sure the translation is up to date (in every
case, don't pull during this process, like during any
check-translation/update process):

- either you write the latest committish to all pages and you check
every translated page against the English one.

- either you write an old enough committish to all pages, then you check
and update the translation as usual, except that check-translation will
show you a lot of changes being already in translated pages.

After that, you will be able to safely follow README instructions for
future translation updates.

Good luck!
