I thought we had eliminated those back in December at Mataro. Daf?

When we did the imports, we had an automated process to identify the
likely name of the template. But some packages make it impossible to do
that... if you have three files all called template.pot it's not
possible to guess an appropriate name. So these ones were assigned the
review-* names automatically. Over time they will be reviewed and the
names fixed to be more appropriate.
