Debugging further, I saw that my name strangely comes up in translators.txt (in temp_update_AUTHORS dir). Not sure why my name is in that file. My last and the only commit in videolan is "http://git.videolan.org/?p=vlc.git;a=commit;h=074be88bc3b00af0c1feb211dec8244497530803”..

This script was mostly uploaded to not get lost and maybe to point out obvious mistakes in it. I was not meant to be the only way to update the AUTHORS file.

Maybe I even have a newer version somewhere.
In any case, the obvious fix is:

Get another patch merged. If it does not include modifications in the po folder, you’ll be in.

The comment should have explained why you were removed..

Another way would be having the script counting translator updates only on po/*po instead of the whole folder.
