The newlines are not error.
In my case, the behavior of keeping all of them in the po file is error

When I bring the po generated in the po4a to OmegaT ( where I have a
translation memory ) I have a very wierd segmentation because of the
Sometimes I have only one comma like a segment.

If I use po4a at this moment I woud have to change my entire Translation
Memory to fit this segmentation differences.

So, for me, at this moment, this is error prone, once I can make mistakes
bringing translations from one segment to another or breaking translated

Po4a is a great tool. I wish I had used that from the very beginning.

Anyway, I stoped using itstool and I am using xml2po.

With the proper parameters ( I have just discovered how importante RTFM is
) I managed to solve the problems with tags I had.

I am doing this way to create po files (sorry if the scripts are not

for i in *.xml; do
  echo $i

  xml2po -k -m docbook -o ${i/xml/po} $i

  echo ${i/xml/po}

for i in *.xml; do
  echo $i

  mv $i ${i/xml/en.xml}

  echo ${i/xml/en.xml}


And this way to merge translated po with xml:
for i in *en.xml; do
  echo $i

  xml2po -k -p ${i/en.xml/po} -o ${i/en.xml/xml} $i

  echo ${i/en.xml/xml}
