[Localization] Pootle UI Suggest issue

As far as I can tell, once a suggestion is made, it can only be
seen when reviewed... why? Probably a feature.
This will be a bit annoying for people with the review rights
enabled as they will find themselves with several identical and
For example, lets say that consensus has been reached that 'Home'
will be translated as 'foo' (instead of 'bar')... people unaware
of the decision will keep on suggesting 'bar' for 'Home' (which
may be the case in some situations, but never for kids)...
Bottom line: I don't think you are doing anything wrong :)
Another 'ugly' feature of suggestions is that they are associated
with the *comment* of the source-code-line in the PO. A feature
inherited in Pootle's development that should now be a bug. This
means that suggestions associated to msgids with matching
comments are all 'pooled'. This is obvious in the Terminology
project in which I failed to set unique comments. For example:
Given that both msgids have the same comment line, a suggestion
for "Audio" will also be associated with "Video" (and viceversa).
In the review process, we'll be face with what may look like
totally unrelated suggestions. Instead of rejecting it, just skip
it... a more suitable msgid will eventually show up where you can
accept it, reducing the same-comment-suggestion-pool.
Sooner or later, the Terminology project will suffer a
reorganization that also incorporates other *real* features that
aren't being used now.
