GTK+ translations for az stored in unsupported charset
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
/usr/share/locale/az/LC_MESSAGES/gtk+.mo is encoded in ISO-8859-9E which is not
available on Fedora.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. msgunfmt /usr/share/locale/az/LC_MESSAGES/gtk+.mo > gtk.po
2. msgconv -t UTF-8 < gtk.po > gtk8.po
msgconv: <stdin>: warning: Charset "iso-8859-9e" is not a portable encoding name.
Message conversion to user's charset might not work.
msgconv: present charset "iso-8859-9e" is not a portable encoding name
PO file converted to UTF-8
The underlying problem is that glic does not support ISO-8859-9E.
So either the encoding should be added to glibc, but that seems unneeded as this
seems to be the only MO file on the system with problems.
The other option is to convert the MO file to UTF-8 (but to do it properly you
would need the ISO-8859-9E format specified). Opening this file in vim seems to
get the encoding correct but since I cannot tell if the characters are correct
or not I cannot be certain.
Since this is a legacy-only package, I'm not sure if any heroic messures are
warranted to try to resolve this.
Patches are always welcome, of course.
it's been awhile, might as well put this one to rest, CLOSING->WONTFIX.
Likely the only/best place to take the issue would be upstream to bugs.gnome.org
(then we could at least mark it UPSTREAM)
