Description Raphaël Hertzog 2010-04-15 10:50:59 EDT
Description of problem:

If you have
<indexterm><primary>package</primary><secondary>search</secondary></indexterm> outside of a translatable tag, in the PO file you will have to translate "package" and "search" separately.

This is too fine-grained and will not allow proper translation in many cases
(consider when "search" is meant as a noun and when "search" is meant as verb, it will often require two different words in other languages).

In the same spirit, a translator might want to create two entries in the index for a given expression because there's no clear mapping for the given expression. If the PO file contains only the content of <indexterm> and not the tag in its entirety, he will not be able to do this.
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2010-05-04 00:08:33 EDT
Made indexterm a single translation entry.
Comment 2 Ruediger Landmann 2010-05-06 01:05:24 EDT
<indexterm><primary>package</primary><secondary>search</secondary></indexterm> 

appears as two separate msgids in version 1.6.3.t122:

#. Tag: primary
#, no-c-format
msgid "package"
msgstr ""

#. Tag: secondary
#, no-c-format
msgid "search"
msgstr ""
Comment 3 Ruediger Landmann 2010-05-06 01:42:10 EDT
Confirmed fixed in version 1.6.3.t150
Comment 4 jito 2010-05-11 18:46:44 EDT
<indexterm> tags do not appear on the test PO file; <primary> and <secondary> tags are now separate entries.
Comment 5 jito 2010-05-11 23:51:45 EDT
Further to the comment above, there are entries in the PO files that correspond to <indexterm> tags even though these tags do not appear on the files:

#. Tag: indexterm
#, no-c-format
msgid "<primary>text elements</primary><secondary>basic</secondary>"
msgstr ""
