Description Andrew Martynov 2005-07-26 03:52:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616

Description of problem:
After install the package coresponding menu item is shown in wrong encoding.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install system-config-bind from RAWHIDE
2. start new X session with Russian language
3. look into menu "Системные параметры/Настройка сервера/"

Actual Results:  look into screen-shot image

Expected Results:  Utility name in Russian

Additional info:

I found that system-config-bind.desktop file was generated from translations of bindconf, which was in 8bit encoding for Russian (and some other languages). So wrong encoding conversion was occured. 

The best way is to include translatable string from system-config-bind.desktop file into .pot and allows translators correct utility names.

While regeneration desktop file translation made by hand in ru.po is included into  .desktop for package so problem in .pot file generation.

This is now fixed with current version in CVS (system-config-bind-4.0.0-21).
The desktop file strings were added to all .po files and the .po file, and 
the desktop file is now re-built during the build from strings in the .po 
files. Translators are responsible for ensuring the 'system-config-bind.desktop'
strings are OK.
