Please find attached the latest copy of the po file.
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!
Hi Lawrence and Leon.
Did this bug never get addressed or did the bug just not get closed?
Should i push out an erratum for RHEL4? Did these fixes make their way upstream?
I converted the mo file for libbonoboui-2.0.mo from
libbonoboui-188.8.131.52cvs20040929-2 to po and noticed that there are some string
indeed were broken due to the encoding. This has been address in the po file
from Comment #1.

Thanks for looking into this. I'll see what I can do about getting this pushed
I commited this for fc4 today. Hopefully it will make test3.
I think this should be moved to RHEL4U2CanFix. I believe that tamil is a RHEL-4
supported language, so we should ship as complete a translation as we can. This
is a very low risk change, too--no functionality is going to break by replacing
a po file. The only thing that could potentially happen is the tamil
translation getting more broken, but that's not likely.
This package was never assigned a QA slot for RHEL4 U2:
QA capacity is already oversubscribed for RHEL4 U2.
Moving forward from RHEL4U2CanFix to RHEL4U3Proposed.
The component this request has been filed against is not planned for inclusion
in the next update. The decision is based on weighting the priority and number
of requests for a component as well as the impact on the Red Hat Enterprise
Linux user-base: other components are considered having higher priority and the
number of changes we intend to include in update cycles is limited.
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.
