Comment (by coffee2code):

 Replying to [comment:2 SergeyBiryukov]:
 > The JS also has another bug: if there's exactly 1 vote, it prints %s
 instead of the number (see the screenshot​), that's because it replaces
 %d, but the singular string has %s.

 This is a result of the translation. From the code snippet I provided
 above, the original text for a single vote for "works" is: `1 person says
 it works`

 The translation (as can be seen for
 https://ru.wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/) is
 `%s сообщение, что работает`

 Had the translation used `%d` instead of `%s`, the number `1` would have
 been substituted in. That doesn't solve the plural support issue, but it
 explains the "bug" of seeing `%s`.

 > Could we use something like Jed for proper plural forms support?

 Jed would have to be part of a broader discussion for w.org, and possibly
 more when everything moves to WP. Short of using Jed, are there any
 suggestions you have for supporting more than 2 plural forms in JS?
