What's up with the French translation?

I'm seeing things like:

#, python-format
msgid "abort: %s: %s\n"
msgstr "abandon : %s : %s\n"

This translation has gratuitous formatting changes. Why is that a good
idea? Ok, I guess that's a strict rule of French typography:


But that led me to this:

#, fuzzy, python-format
msgid "parent: %d:%s %s\n"
msgstr "abandon : %s : %s\n"

#, fuzzy, python-format
msgid "branch: %s\n"
msgstr "abandon : %s\n"

And these are obviously wrong, yes?

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
