I've tried this and it is enough for me.

Why should it be different? It launch a different command?

It worked very well, thank you Ulf, as usual. 

Done this:

#!/bin/bash

LOCREPO=/home/marco/git-gnome/gimp-help-2
LLIST="da de el es fi fr hr it ja ko lt nl nn pl ru sl sv zh_CN"
POSRCS=introduction
PODEST=appendix
#MDEBUG="y"


cd $LOCREPO
pwd
for PONAT in `echo $LLIST`
do
  if [ "$MDEBUG" == "y" ]; then
    echo  msgmerge --width=79 \
                   --compendium=po/${PONAT}/${POSRCS}.po \
                   --output-file=po/${PONAT}/${PODEST}.po \
                   po/${PONAT}/${PODEST}.po pot/${PODEST}.pot
  else
    msgmerge --width=79 \
             --compendium=po/${PONAT}/${POSRCS}.po \
             --output-file=po/${PONAT}/${PODEST}.po \
             po/${PONAT}/${PODEST}.po pot/${PODEST}.pot
  fi
done

I've already pushed it (hope it was all right).
The new whats-new page is a work in progress and it is not complete.
Feel free to add, correct, comment, and forgive my many errors, please.

PS: May I ask you a favour Ulf? Can you tell me why the command syntax is that?
Why you have to specify appendix.po(t) three times? 

Looking at the command manual page I would never say that I would have
to put it like this.

>From the man page...

man msgmrg

MSGMERGE(1)                           GNU                          MSGMERGE(1)

NAME
       msgmerge - merge message catalog and template

SYNOPSIS
       msgmerge [OPTION] def.po ref.pot
....

it seems just a 2 argument command...

TIA
