Description Jens Petersen 2004-04-07 03:36:34 UTC
Description of problem:
This is bug 113995, which was fixed in FC1updates and Fc2devel,
but for RHEL3: basically because the spec file overwrites ja.po
with an older tweaked version various translations are missing
for ja (like "Password: ", "Shutdown", etc).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
see bug 113995.

Notes: I recommend using the FC1updates srpm as the basis for this.

I've tested gdm- and it looks good. Thanks.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-04-09 14:06:21 UTC
Actually it seems I was confused: for Taroon the overwriting of
the ja.po doesn't actually lose any translations or at least not
any really significant ones afaict - it was the missing "Shut_down"
that made me think there was a problem, but it turned out it is
missing upstream too.

However I noticed that the translation of "Username:" changed
to something slightly worse: so I'm sorry, but perhaps it is
better to undo the change.

I'll attach a patch for that below which should fix these problems.

Comment 5 Mark McLoughlin 2004-04-14 12:55:38 UTC
Jens: I should remove the perl hack now too, right?

i.e. these lines aren't relevant because gdm-ja.po has the correct

# fix the time format for ja
perl -pi -e 's|^msgstr "%a %b %d, %H:%M"|msgstr "%m/%d \(%a\)
%H:%M"|;' po/ja.po
perl -pi -e 's|^msgstr "%a %b %d, %I:%M %p"|msgstr "%m/%d \(%a\) %p
%I:%M"|' po/ja.po

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-04-14 13:05:32 UTC
Yes, you're right: they won't do any harm, but might as well be
removed I suppose.  Thanks. :-)

Comment 7 Mark McLoughlin 2004-04-14 13:23:57 UTC
Okay, building this now.

I'll close this when the pkg has been moved to dist-3.0E-U2.

- Add back ja.po with a correct translation for "Shutdown" and remove
  the perl date format foo (bug #120244)
