Description Dimitris Glezos 2007-10-05 19:30:41 EDT
## Description of problem:

Static POT file is different from the dynamic one (intltool):

$ msgfmt --statistics *pot
0 translated messages, 178 untranslated messages.

$ intltool-update --pot
[glezos@shuttle po]$ msgfmt --statistics *pot
0 translated messages, 177 untranslated messages.

This might cause confusion to translators, since some of them will try to
`msgmerge` with the POT file instead of running `intltool-update <lang>`.

I guess best practice is either to completely remove the POT file (a new
translator will either get the msgmerged PO from translate.fpo or need the whole
source code to produce the PO/POT) or have the POT up2date by always using
`intltool-update --pot` to update the POT file.

Note: the stats page create the POT on the fly.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-08 21:21:45 EDT
Hrmmm -- for some reason, the pot file wasn't being updated on 'make dist' as 
it should be.  Even a 'make -C po pirut.pot' was saying nothing to be done. 
Forced it to update and then tried touching files and the right thing seems to
happen, so should hopefully go away.
