Before announcing this to the translators, I'd like to see a few
msgid bugs fixed.  Patches are attached.

The first makes the punctuation, capitalization, and layout of
the datamash usage text more consistent.  The second removes a
redundant Options header -- when seeing dashes, the user already
knows that these are options; grouping them in different kinds
is enough -- and uses the package name to refer to the man page;
otherwise, when doing ./datamash --help, it will say to look at
'man ./datamash', which is wrong.

The third patch gettextizes the description of option -g as a
whole, instead of as two separate lines.  And the fourth adds
as missing closing parenthesis to one error message, and then
rewords both of them to make more sense to me.  :)  Maybe the
rewording is wrong, so you may want to change that.

Please announce a new tarball when things have been fixed.

Best regards,
