The tradition in coreutils has been to use the latest stable version of the tools, and to not worry overly much about older versions. This is easier for me, at any rate. I know Jim sometimes prefers to use something that is even later than the latest stable version, but I'm a bit more conservative.

So, I'd rather just assume gettext 0.19.1 or later for developers. (Not 0.19, as 0.19 doesn't work for 'grep' and anyway 0.19 is too old. :-)
