Follow-up Comment #1, bug #56455 (project gettext):

See also https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?56383

> If I strace xgettext I can see it reading
/usr/share/gettext/its/metainfo.its so I'm not sure why it's not being

Note that files under /usr/share/gettext/its/ are not maintained by gettext. 
It is the location where other tools install their own extraction rules.  This
is analogous to /usr/share/aclocal vs /usr/share/aclocal-X.Y; only the latter
is maintained by automake, while the former is provided for extensibility.

So on Fedora, I see:
$ rpm -qf /usr/share/gettext/its/metainfo.its
and the file does contain the rule to extract <releases>.

I am not sure whether or not <releases> should be extracted, but you might
want to contact the developers of the package (appstream).
