The original email has...
To try and minimize disruption I've a script available in master as
solenv/bin/update-for-gettext to update our current translations to
give them a new msgctxt (and update their keyid comment)
I've ... run this over the sample tarball of .pos extracted
from pootle that cloph provided. i.e.
python2 /path/solenv/bin/update-for-gettext translations/libo_ui
It shrinks and normalizes the msgctxt and updates the keyid comment for
.src and .ui strings and moves them into a per-module messages.po.

caolanm->cloph: will this script suffice for getting pootle updated ?

so that's what I hoping to do here, update the existing translations in
pootle that have the old autogeneratoed msgctxt to have the new
"static" msgctxt so that (most) translations are not considered
