how to report a mistake in a translation?

Hi all,

I wonder how to report an orthographic mistake in the French translation. I don't want to open a bug for such a small problem, as I have already opened too many invalid ones these last few weeks. What surprises me is it seems to have appeared only in the unstable branch, the translation was correct before.

The problem is the translation of "repeat" in the "filters" menu (the reshow and repeat functions for the last filter). It is translated by "répétiter", which is not a French word(*), and should be "répéter".

Regards,

Olivier.

(*) Répétiter is actually used by kids or by people imitating kids mistakes, but it is definetely not an official word.
