This was currently not an issue in the Xml module, but if it is a limitation
for the Wml module, it can be changed (I don't think any module or user
rely on it).
I think it can be fixed in the translate_paragraph subroutine of the Xml
module (before the first pushline)
Thank you for polite suggestions! I'll try to fix.
The goal is just to check how it evolves, but if the resulting
document changes, and if it looks more like the original comments, then
Just update the testsuite when you update the Xml module.
The Wml module is currently not released in the po4a tarballs, so I
not really care about this module during this release.
Just let me know when you think it is of an acceptable quality for a
release. We can plan a later release with Wml (and also translations).
(I also need to translate / remove the French IRC session extract in the
TODO session of the Wml manpage)
Sure. I'm looking forward to give you good news. ;-)
