Update of bug #45591 (project gettext):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #5:

When you look through the formulas in the gettext documentation
you see that all but the last one map n=1 to the number 0. This is because
when children learn to count, it is through "one, two, three, ...", not "zero,
one, two, three, ...".

If you want to prove that this manner of designating plural forms is unnatural
for Slovenian, please pick the 5 (five) most popular books that describe
Slovenian grammar, and for each of them
- state the authors, title, and edition,
- attach a scan/photo of the page that describes the plural rules.
