If we change the source string won't we break all the existing pootle translations for this string, or does pootle/gettext ignore case when finding a match?

gettext is case-sensitive

We just need to check with Rafael and Gonzalo about the genpot process. POT files get updated all the time, we just want to make sure it happens properly by following the changes all the way into the git POT file and then into Pootle.

The fuzzy matching algorithm of "Updating from Templates" would successfully match on mismatched case. The result would be the translated strings being populated, but flagged as fuzzy. Chances are many localizations would be fine either because they already capitalize the second word (like Spanish "Grados / Radianes") which currently causes the string to get flagged with the simplecaps pofilter or the localizers will simply change the case of the second word and "unfuzzy" the string and recommit the PO file. No big deal.

cjl is right, this change will make it to pootle on order to translators to change the case. Np.
