"install.po"?  goba had me special case "installer.po" here:

"Do not merge installer.po into merged PO file"

when the packaging script is creating tarballs for translations, it  
normally merges all the .po files into a giant [lang].po file.   
however, it's now excluding "installer.po" so you'd end up with:

installer.po  # just the installer strings
de.po         # everything else

in your de-5.x-1.0.tar.gz file.

if you call it "install.po", it'll get merged in with de.po.

do we need to change the behavior of the packaging script of the  
translators? ;)
