Just wanted to follow up if you have any timeframe on rebuilding the package for
RHEL4. It would be great to include the fixed tamil translation in because tamil
is one of our official supported languages. Thanks!

I have built gail-1.8.0-3.el4 in dist-4E-U2 now.

Comment 4 Lawrence Lim 2005-05-12 06:09:00 UTC
Confirmed fixed in EL4 with gail-1.8.0-3.el4. However, in FC4, gail-1.8.3-1, the
encoding is still broken.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2005-05-18 18:20:54 UTC
I can't quite believe that, as the only difference between the .po
files is the creation date.

Ah, sorry. I spoke too soon. I did not update that RHEL4 directory in a loong
