There's no decision made yet whether to ship the man and texinfo translations in
one template. For the time being, do nothing. And if you can't wait, continue on
translate the texinfo stuff based on the pot file generated with my script, it
is easy to split the file later, if needed.

Good idea. The last update was almost ten years ago, and it is always better to
have the UI strings (almost) complete before working on docs. If you do that,
please convert the file encoding from ISO-8859-2 to UTF-8 please.

Regarding po files for texinfo, maybe you meant the TP domain
"help2man-texinfo"? This is the first attempt at all to get texinfo docs of a
GNU project translated. Once the latest version 1.46.1 appears in Archlinux,
install it and test the behavior of the docs. Translations are included for
Polish, Ukrainian and German. As far as I can see, the package is already
available in Debian Sid and Mageia Cauldron.
