Some comments from the 3.1.1 string freeze still apply so I have
included these below.

Note that libalpm has had zero string changes this time around,
meaning you do not need to submit this po file unless you are making
grammar or spelling corrections, etc.

If you have any questions, please contact the pacman-dev mailing list. Thanks!

Current list of known translators:
