You can certainly make a PR if the diff is small and it simply fixes a few
missing terms. However re-exporting module POT files can be tricky as they
sometimes contain "foreign" terms added by other modules in their own
namespace. You can also do the change in the POT manually, in that case be sure
to use 'msgfmt -c ' at the end to verify the validity of the file (no
duplication, etc.)
Finally when you make the PR, be sure to mention @mart-e or @odony so we can
fast-forward them.

An alternative is to post in this mailing-list and ask for a re-export of the
relevant module, it will usually be done a couple hours later :-)
