This bug is a part of the split-up of bug 24068.
msgid "Starting httpd: "
msgid "Reloading httpd: "
msgid "Shutting down http: "
are very similar and use the name of the service, "httpd".
The name "httpd" is an untranslateable acronym, so I think that using
"Starting %s: ", "Reloading %s: ", and "Shutting down %s: " for these is
acceptable and will contribute to message re-use in the pot.
Also note that the last message contains a typo (should really be "httpd",
I believe) but of course if this bug is solved that won't matter.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Should be fixed as of apache-1.3.14-7.
If it is changed, the changes haven't propagated to initscripts in the i18n
Replacing "httpd" in these messages with an environment variable called $prog
would probably be best, as this is what other modules hopefully will use in
their init messages.
Fixed in apache-1.3.14-11.
