  * dh_translations:
    - Prevent domain confusion for Meson packages when a help-* domain
      is present (LP: #1762889).
    - Don't build help-*.pot. Those templates are used to build static
      localized XML pages, and we don't want to create LP templates and
      deal with exported LP translations for such pages anyway.
    - Allow the domain to be passed to dh_translations via an option in

  [ Didier Roche ]
  * dh_translations, fix meson being picked even if not used as the build
    system (causing FTBFS on n-m-applet):
    - detect if a ninja build directory was found, otherwise, discard meson
      findings and let other build systems be tested.
    - follow the same code logic for setting meson as preferred, but only
      if domain wasn't found, instead of unconditionally overriding.
    - still prefer po/Makefile as first source
    - let people override it with dh{domain}

dh-translations: debhelper extension for translation support

 This package provides a debhelper extension to perform common translation
 related operations during package build:
  * Try to build a current PO template.
  * Remove inline translations from *.desktop, *.server, *.schemas, and
    *.policy files and replace them with a link to the gettext domain, so that
    strings in them will get translated at runtime from *.mo files. This allows
    language packs to ship updated translations.

pkgbinarymangler: strips translations and alters maintainers during build

 pkgbinarymangler consists of a dpkg-deb wrapper that calls the following
 helper applications while building a debian binary package:
 pkgstriptranslations removes all *.mo files in /usr/share/locale from
 all package build directories. It is used to strip off gettext translations
 from generated binary packages, because translations are already shipped
 in the language packs. Its behaviour (which is disabled by default) is
 configured in /etc/pkgbinarymangler/striptranslations.conf.
 pkgmaintainermangler adjusts the maintainer field in binary packages to
 match a set of rules (including whitelists, mass renames by component,
 maintainer name, etc) defined in the pkgmaintainermangler configuration
 file at /etc/pkgbinarymangler/maintainermangler.conf.
