Hi all

See: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/source/phabricator/browse/wmf%252Fstable/src/applications/diffusion/ssh/DiffusionGitUploadPackSSHWorkflow.php$30

- the original text to translate is: "# Fetch received by \"%s\", forwarding to cluster host.\n",

- when I use the old editor, and I request to show the differences, the delta is a new line added by the developper (I guess the backslash n in the source text)

- then I add this newline manually (with Return key, one or several times) and submit the translation

- I reopen this message in the old editor -> the newlines are present in the translated text BUT the history of corrections has not registered my modifications (history is still stopped at previous contributor name)

- I decide to use the new Visual Editor; i'm disapointed because there is no diff option there

- the message I see has no new line so there would be nothing to translate (but I know there is one difference)

- should I use the \<br\> ? i dont know.

- moreof that, due to the ignored correction, the message remains presented again and again in loop in translatewiki as if it has never been translated

Questions:

1. why newlines are not accepted in the translated text ?

2. why history is not updated ?

3. why message in loop for translation ?

MediaWiki cannot deal with trailing spaces. The person who is managing Phabricator translations is aware of this and I expect this to be fixed later this year.
