[Po4a-devel] [patch] PO headers inconsistency

there is a tiny inconsistency in the way po4a writes PO headers.

When it creates a PO file, it writes in there:

    "Content-Transfer-Encoding: ENCODING"

... on the other hand, at other times, e.g. when updating a PO file,
this header field is replaced by:

    "Content-Transfer-Encoding: ENCODING\n"

This is probably only annoying for VCS repositories history, e.g. when
using a multi-lingual ikiwiki[1] thanks to the po plugin[2] I wrote,
that heavily uses po4a.

In this case, this tiny inconsistency triggers a double commit of PO
files when a page is added to the wiki. This bug was reported by Joey


The attached one-line patch fixes this "bug". It would be pretty nice
if it was applied on time to be shipped in Squeeze.

Bye, thanks for po4a!
