Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450452
PolicyKit-gnome doesn't support GNU plural forms.

Description of problem:
While trying to create Russian translation I found that it's impossible to
translate some messages correctly because only two plual forms supported but
there are 3 forms in Russian. It's bad idea to have multiple messages for plural
forms like "1 minute ago" and "%d minutes ago" because there are many languages
with more than 2 plural forms. It should look like
msgid "%d minute ago"
msgid_plural "%d minutes ago"
in .pot file with proper support in code.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This string is gone in PolicyKit 0.91, which we will be switching to soon.
I don't think we will fix this in 0.9.x, so I am closing this for now.
Should plurals reappear in PolicyKit translations, I'll make sure we use ngettext
