Description Christian Rose 2000-08-03 13:21:46 EDT
The userpasswd program in usermode seems to be only be wrapping the output
of the
passwd program in a GTK window. This means that userpasswd isn't really
translateable, since passwd isn't translateable. :(

In the future, I'd thus really like to see a translateable "passwd" with
gettext support.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-09-12 16:04:13 EDT
A translatable passwd command also requires translatable modules in PAM, which
is going to affect several packages....
Comment 2 Christian Rose 2000-12-17 22:05:01 EST
In that case I guess my translation request will cover those modules too... :-)
Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2004-12-14 13:30:07 EST
Christian, could you please file a bug against pam regarding the
issue? Passwd actually calls pam and libuser for user authentication,
so the messages need to be translated there.
