Rename Desktop menu to System
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
While not good, System is better than Desktop, and is what upstream uses.
Ubuntu uses it too.
Hmm, some translations (at least the German one) already use "System" for this.
What is the best way to do such a string change ? Keep the original msgstr and
change the various en_ translations ?
We should be careful not to break translations on this.
Should be fixed in tomorrow's rawhide. I changed the msgid to System and
updated all the po files to use the new msgid.
Translation message (Korean Message)isn't changed in ko_KR.UTF-8.
none of us speaks Korean....
Getting new translations is hard. The easiest way is for us to try to get this
change upstream and then the gnome translation team can come up with translations.
Just to be clear, Comment 2 meant "we should make sure that the old translations
still work, and untranslated 'System' doesn't show up everywhere translated
'Desktop' used to" Note some of the translations (like German) already use
This is the best we can do, I think, until the name is changed upstream.
