Fatal errors in sv.po of system-config-mouse
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:40 EST
GÃ¶ran Uddeborg recently pointed out to me that the sv.po of
system-config-mouse / redhat-config-mouse contained fatal errors; to
be precise duplicated messages. Such fatal errors will result in the
.mo file not being generated at build time and hence ruin the entire
translation for the affected language.
Upon closer inspection, it looks like this commit was the one causing

From the looks of the diff for this commit, it seems like someone
automatically searched-and-replaced the name "redhat-config-mouse"
with "system-config-mouse" throughout the entire po file.
As there were already two sets of messages stored in the po file, i.e.
#~ msgid "Run 'redhat-config-mouse --help' to see a list of mice"
#~ msgstr "KÃ¶r \"redhat-config-mouse --help\" fÃ¶r att se en lista med
#~ msgid "Run 'system-config-mouse --help' to see a list of mice"
#~ msgstr "KÃ¶r \"system-config-mouse --help\" fÃ¶r att se en lista med
only differing in the application name, the blind search-and-replace
(without subsequent error checking) did create two sets of identical
messages and hence fatal errors.
I tried to resolve the issue myself now in CVS, but translators seem
to be unable to commit to CVS right now (see
Fixed in system-config-mouse 1.2.6-2. Thanks for your report.
