Description Will Woods 2008-03-18 16:25:37 UTC
(Apologies in advance if this isn't the right place for this..) The "About this Computer" item was added to the System menu in Rawhide on March 8. It's provided by about-this-desktop.desktop, in the gnome-system-monitor package. http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewcvs/rpms/gnome-system-monitor/devel/about-this- computer.desktop?view=markup This is a Fedora-specific feature right now - it''ll be moved upstream sometime after F9. But I don't want to add a whole transifex module just for one string that will be moved upstream in the next six months. How should I go about getting it translated for F9?
Comment 1 Dimitris Glezos 2008-03-18 18:29:58 UTC
To work with PO files: the quickest way would be to dump a POT somewhere in /cvs/l10n, where translators already have access to. You might need to become a member of 'cvsl10n' to create it. FWIW, adding that dir also to transifex would be trivial. If you'd like to dump the file/s in an existing VCS, add the user 'transif' to your group and I can enable it via Transifex right away. To work without PO files: You could just create a wiki page I guess. Either way, a quick email to fedora-trans-list and a blog post, probably with ready-to-follow commands, will get enough people to translate it pronto.
Comment 2 Robert-André Mauchin 2008-03-19 12:14:21 UTC
Or you could try to request a string freeze break upstream, arguing that the string is trivial to translate, and that most distribution will ship at least 2.22.1 (but I think you'll have few chance of success).

I am creating a patch now. Please hang on. :)
Comment 4 Caius Chance 2008-04-01 05:38:09 UTC
Just checked out the gnome-system-monitor package. The about-this-computer.desktop is another source beyond upstream tarball (check .spec file). I have no idea to create PO files for this file with tools. Or we should pass the localization of this file to in house L10N team for generating the .POs?

For the moment, I'm coordinating translation here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/WillWoods/AboutThisComputer Once we figure out where this goes upstream I'll put the translations in proper .po files.

Hi Will, Do we have still any time left for this task? I think, I can help you with getting some of the languages translated...
Comment 7 Will Woods 2008-04-14 15:46:04 UTC
RC1 is a week away, so.. there's a little time left, yes.

Created attachment 302840 [details] Untranslated "About this Computer" screenshot from Punjabi desktop... Attaching screenshot here to give an idea where exactly the message is appearing...
Comment 9 Ankit Patel 2008-04-21 10:09:09 UTC
Hi Will, More than 30 languages are now in the list. You can see the translation is updated now: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/WillWoods/AboutThisComputer Reassigning to package owner and QE component of the package to rebuild the package with the latest translations...
