Source string contextualization

Hi all,

While translating some of the fedora packages we often come across some 
source strings whose context or meaning is not clear. This results in 
wrong translations which is discovered later while using the actual 
application. This in turn effects the concerned application.

To solve this issue, we have formed a Fedora SIG named "Source String 
Contextualizing Group" [1] aimed at
providing concise yet meaningful description of the concerned source 
strings in the source code itself to ensure the correctness and quality 
in the resulting translations.

We welcome feedback and suggestions.
