POT inconsistent against code for Record activity

The main issue here seems to be the fact that the location of the
Record repository has changed (earlier, the Record POT was fetched
from a SVN repository). Is this going the repository from where
further Record development will be happening in the future ? In that
case, I'll switch over to the new repository.
