Proposing F18 blocker per Fedora 18 Final Release Criterion:
"14. All critical path actions on release-blocking desktop environments should correctly display all sufficiently complete translations available for use"

<bcl> adamw: I don't know what's wrong with 889352. it is in the pot file and the glade is: <property name="label" translatable="yes">Set _keyboard to default layout for selected language.</property>

steve: if you figure this one out, do yell!

Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-12-21 21:47:32 UTC
n/m, bcl got it.

Comment 6 Steve Tyler 2012-12-21 21:54:33 UTC
[f18-branch] add setKeyboardCheckButton to list of things to translate (#889352)


Yet another way for translations to go wrong. There must be a better way ... :-)
