Dear maintainers

In the info documentation of the emacs integration, the description of
the command 0 (|po-other-window|) is a bit weird and arguably sexist: it
quite rigidly describes gender roles for translators and programmers.  I
understand the joke but it's easy to see this as confirmation that
coders should be men.  I also understand this can be a sensitive
subject, in different ways.  If you don't particularly care for this
issue I don't intend to push it.
I'm curious, is there some kind of guideline on this matter for GNU
projects?  There's a lot of female users in documentation and other texts...

Anyway, thanks for maintaining!
