Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 206374
fedora-install-guide.pot is in DOS format
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:49:17 EDT
Description of problem:
translate/install-guide/fedora-install-guide.pot is in DOS format.
The problem is that when you do msgmerge you get Windows CRLF copied into the
PO-file as well, and then you get parse errors when you try to check it in...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the POT file in Emacs or vi and see the ^M chars...
Contains a DOS CR+LF on every msgstr line.
Should not contain any DOS CR LF...
The POT file was sent out in standard UNIX format (LF only). If there is a
problem with it, it must have happened before or during import. I am cc'ing the
Translation Project chair so he can look at the problem, but it's definitely not
on this end.
It seems it is only that file. It's like someone opened it Windows Notepad and
then checked it in with CVS on a UNIX platform...
Usually CVS automatically translates the files correctly on the platform it is
I can fix this problem in 1 min, but I'm not sure if I am allowed to fiddle
around with the POT files. So I wait...
can you please attached updated file in bugzilla after upating?

Converted and unconverted(DOS) pot file
I added a tar file with 2 files so you can compare:
The first one is the one directly from CVS (v1.2).
The second one is the corrected one with no DOS newlines.
To get the translated file I simply did:
cvs checkout fedora-install-guide.pot
diff fedora-install-guide.pot.fromcvs fedora-install-guide.pot
Thanks Magnus for your finding.
I find no reason to commit this to CVS, so commiting update file to CVS
