    The messages in the .pot file still use http instead of https.

I can't see any instances of this in my bootstrapped git clone. I can
see only one HTTPS URL in a message in hello.pot.

Where is the .pot file stored? It is not in the usual /po/ directory:

I know that strictly speaking, the .pot file is a generated file, but
still, generating it requires an external tool (xgettext) that uses
heuristics, so I would rather keep a copy in the repository, if only to
be able to easily see when and why messages change.

Where do you record which version of xgettext was used to build the
releases of GNU hello?

Relying on the Translation Project for storing the .po files feels
questionable to me.  Are you able to reconstruct a build of GNU hello
from 1995?  In the light of reproducible builds, GNU hello does not set
a good example, in my opinion.
