These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released

update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
This bug is still present as of today (2006-04-14) with the system (FC5) fully
It seems that xchat package does not ship the compiled message catalogs
(/usr/share/locale/*/LC_MESSAGES/xchat.mo) except for two locales:
Could it be that the rest of the locales have a problem and they don't build?
2.6.0 didn't include many locales, 2.6.1 has a lot more.
This has been fixed in the later versions -- currently xchat contains 16
languages (including French).
