[libreoffice-l10n] Can I just ignore the constantly-returning hundreds of ‘Critical errors’ on unchanged strings in Pootle?

Hello,

Just to be sure, what is the current effect of leaving strings with
‘Critical errors’ in Pootle as they are? (E.g. they will still be used in
the builds and not rejected and replaced with English, is that correct?)

Also, are there any plans to unify the format of placeholders (%, $, {},
[], etc.) and get rid of the non-escaped XML elements and XML errors in the
English text? Many ‘XML tags’ false positives come from things like
<sth_that_is_not_an_XML_tag> instead of &lt;sth_that_is_not_an_XML_tag&gt;,
and the ‘Placeholder’ false positives come from things like [Runtime],
[None], etc.

Constantly maintaining zero critical errors has become a Sisyphean task,
especially for a one-person team for a small language, since the error
flags constantly get reset for scores of otherwise unchanged strings and
switching them back one by one is a very slow and tedious process
(apparently can’t be done offline and/or automatically). If these actually
do not prevent the strings from being picked up for the localized build,
I’d rather let them stay red, regardless that sometimes this may hide some
actual errors, especially if the alternative is to abandon the project.

TIA,
Mihail
