So what should I do ?
1) ask a maintainer to run ./waf updatepo on geany-plugins, update my
working copy when it is done and create my patch that will contain only the
strings I added
2) run ./waf updatepo myself and send the patch with the lot of updates
(even on plugins I don't work on)

the issue is that the command to update po files is "./waf updatepo"
instead of "./waf --update-po"

Ok, I'll push them on SourceForge.
