Thank you for the fix! I wanted to report this as well and found this report.

Can you, please, push this fix into a release?

As the latest release is from year 2020 currently and does not include this fix.

Podiff complains of syntax error when running it on a po file where there is a msgctxt that is so long that it spans several lines, where the first will be "".

The attached po file is a tiny test case, from the phosh translation. Running podiff on it produces the following error:

phosh-podifftest.sv.po:26: syntax error
