git-gui: Don't translate the special Apple menu
Peter Karlsson pointed out there is no value in translating the string "Apple", as this is used as the dummy label for the Apple menu on Mac OS X systems. The Apple menu is actually not the menu with the Apple corporate logo, but the menu next to it, which shows the name of the application and is typically called the application menu. Most users of git-gui see this menu titled as "Git Gui". The actual label of this menu comes from our Info.plist file and cannot be specified by any other means. Translating this string in the Tcl PO files is not necessary. Signed-off-by: Shawn O. Pearce <>
