Description Robert Scheck 2007-06-02 05:23:11 EDT
Description of problem:
Mike, according to our nice talk about smolt I'm attaching here the tiny patch
to solve the issue we discovered this morning at LinuxTag. Please apply :)

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

How reproducible:
Everytime, because smolt is expecting "j" while it's asking for "y/n".

Fix for the same problem in Spanish translation
Comment 3 Robert Scheck 2007-06-02 06:03:03 EDT
Please note, that Norwegian translation (nb) is also broken, but I don't know
any native speaker out of the box. A solution would be to change the msgstr of
msgid "y" simply from "j" to "yes":

msgid "Send this information to the Smolt server? (y/n)"
msgstr ""

msgid "y"
msgstr "j"
Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2007-06-02 06:05:46 EDT
Oriya translation (or) is broken the same way, but I'm not using a UTF-8 system
to be able to fix this in a sane way somehow. Easiest (but maybe wrong) would be
to copy the value from the second translation to the first one...

msgid "Send this information to the Smolt server? (y/n)"
msgstr "Smolt ସେବକକ ଏହ ସଚନା ପଠାନତ? (y/n)"

msgid "y"
msgstr "ହ"
Comment 5 Robert Scheck 2007-06-02 06:31:36 EDT
Okay, I've checked now all translations that are provided for smolt. Please also
apply my fix for Spain and have a look to the two others...
Comment 6 Mike McGrath 2007-06-02 07:54:51 EDT
I may just change it so that y is always accepted as well as whatever the local
equivelant is supposed to be.

is this a bad idea?
Comment 7 Robert Scheck 2007-06-02 08:01:27 EDT
I agree with you. Hopefully there is no language where "y" means "no". Finally
my figured out problems should be solved within the translation for a correct

Comment 10 Sebastian Vahl 2007-10-25 04:02:35 EDT
Problem still persists in smolt-0.9.9-1.fc8.
Comment 11 Jesse Keating 2007-10-25 08:53:26 EDT
Moving to target.  We won't hold up the release for this.
Comment 12 Robert Scheck 2007-10-25 09:24:34 EDT
Jesse, this bug has to be fixed anyway! It is a (very) easy fix and I already 
told Mike this one at F7 release which is now nearly 6 months ago!
Comment 13 Jesse Keating 2007-10-25 09:37:26 EDT
I don't disagree that it should be fixed, that's why it's on the Target. 
However at the end of the day we wouldn't hold up the release of Fedora 8 for
this issue.  It just doesn't meet the criteria.
Comment 14 Robert Scheck 2007-12-16 08:16:29 EST
Mike! Can you please fix this bug before F9?
Comment 15 Martin Jürgens 2007-12-16 09:18:13 EST
Maybe the easiest way is to just change the translation on
Comment 16 Robert Scheck 2007-12-16 13:32:30 EST
Yes, that's what I was asking for. See the translation patches.
Comment 17 Mike McGrath 2007-12-16 14:03:56 EST
This was all been fixed a long time ago.  Something is completely fubar with the
current german translation which will likely have to be fixed by the german
translator but the es translation is as it should be:

¿Enviar esta información al servidor Smolt? (s/n)

The german po doesn't seem to be working at all right now.

Robert, what version of smolt are you seeing german translations work at all? 
The latest version doesn't seem to be correct.  smolt-1.0-2.fc7 is what I just
tested with.

Comment 19 Mike McGrath 2008-04-04 11:04:51 EDT
This does seem to be working now -
