 >  This header is also correct, and in the form used with previous

 The .pot in the zip file at https://wordpress.org/plugins/buddypress/ (the
 "distribution" version) is generated as part of our Grunt-based build
 process. The .pot file in the tagged version (the "buddypress.svn"
 version) is created by the wordpress.org potbot. That's why the headers
 don't match. The versions that are in buddypress.svn will be removed at a
 future date. See #5920, #5621.

 From my understanding, the different header format should not make a
 difference to how you translate the file. If I'm wrong about that, and the
 change in header format causes a problem for sites, please provide some
 additional details for testing.

 > Doing this generates untranslated strings. For example, the SWA page
 title or the buddybar View menu or the swa default filter - everything -,
 yet these are old !

 A number of strings have changed in small ways in BP 2.1. See eg [8662]
 and [8705]. A reminder that moving from `__()` to `_x()` will produce a
 new entry in the .pot file.

 >  If you update from source (a la poEdit) this pot file (coming with BP),
 you receive 1144 new strings !

 If you are updating from source, you are probably including `bp-
 forums/bbpress/`. Either remove it before generating the .pot, or
 configure Poedit to ignore this directory (I'm not sure the latter is
 possible, but I assume it is).

 > When you upload the po file, you get a header without any information.
 But a po file without a keywords list used by the software is a little
 more tendencious.

 Can you provide more information about this? I'm not sure I understand the

 > a uncomplete translation on glotpress who can't fit with 2.1... where
 2.1 is not avaible in the project !

 There were some problems around the time that 2.1 was released regarding
 translate.wordpress.org synchronization. So we (mainly me and nacin)
 decided to feed the 2.1 language packs from the Development branch on
 GlotPress for now. We will create a 2.1.x branch soon. More background:
 dev&day=2014-09-24&sort=asc#m241993 Sorry for not being clearer about this
 with translators - it has been a bit confusing on our end too.


 Leaving this ticket open for feedback on the following:
 - whether the different header formats cause technical problems
 - clarification on the "you get a header without any information" problem
