[wp-hackers] "This plugin is not properly prepared for localization" - what am I missing

The translations page for my plugin RSVPMaker displays the message shown


That warning links to the instructions for internationalization, which I
have tried to follow. Most of the key output strings are encoded with __()
or _e(). I've created a POT file, and a few translations have been produced
by users of the plugin. I fixed one issue with the header, where the
"domain path" for the translation files wasn't specified, but I'm still
getting the same message.

How do I figure out what I'm missing?
