new gdm needs translation updates
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:56 EST
Description of problem:
gdm needs its translations updated after its major rewrite.
Damned Lies also says there are a couple of files missing from the POT files list.
Are the translations, to make into F9 or F10?
For F9/gnome-2.22, the updated translations are in the gnome-2-20 branch:

> Are the translations, to make into F9 or F10?
Thanks. Ideally both but I guess it is too late for F9 final now.
Perhaps they could go into an update? But we certainly need
them for gnome-2.24/F10.
As per the damned lies page for gdm on l10.gnome.org the statistics for the POT
files vary widely and indicate that the message templates provided for
translations as well as the translations that have been packaged are out of sync.
Pot file statistics:
HEAD: 213 messages
branch gnome-2-20 (indicated to be the branch used for the gnome 2.22 stable
release): 897 messages
The following is the statistics for a few languages, found in the po folder of
657 translated messages, 121 untranslated messages.
132 translated messages
970 translated messages.
778 translated messages.
111 translated messages, 15 fuzzy translations, 100 untranslated messages.
204 translated messages, 1 fuzzy translation, 17 untranslated messages.
223 translated messages.
961 translated messages.
225 translated messages, 1 untranslated message
30 translated messages, 54 fuzzy translations, 48 untranslated messages.
Please note, that the total number of messages for the <lang>.po files vary widely.
There was some discussion about the inconsistency about gdm messages on the
gnome-i18n list earlier when gdm module was going through an overhaul.
Hope this helps.
I've updates the POTFILES.in in upstream svn to include the missing files.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Ok, I see about 18 languages have been updated since 11 April,
but many key languages are still missing...
requested by Jens Petersen (#27995)
If at all possible, please pull in updated translations from GNOME SVN. I'm using the Finnish translation (fi.po) and the po file shipped with Fedora 10's gdm-2.24.0-12.fc10.i386 has only 182 messages when http://l10n.gnome.org/POT/gdm.HEAD/gdm.HEAD.fi.po has 241 messages.
There's also a translation bug fixed in the current fi.po. "Restart" was translated incorrectly into Finnish as "Restart GDM". That has been fixed in GNOME SVN.
It seems at least the Finnish translation is updated in the current Rawhide gdm package, but I won't close this, since I'm not sure about other languages.
Japanese is still not updated anyway but that may be the ongoing upstream issue.
Noriko, I tried to get movement from upstream Japanese l10n on this a while back and still see no update.
This situation has been persisting since gdm was rewritten some releases ago...
Are or someone in Fedora l10n able to help get the Japanese (and maybe other) translations updated?
We really need to get this solved for Fedora 11.
The F10 version of Fedora's gdm is missing some translated strings for Brazilian Portuguese too, although the upstream version was fully translated in time for GNOME 2.24.
The same is about to happen with F11 and GNOME 2.26. A fix for this would be highly appreciated.
The issue of 'Japanese and other languages translation are not updated'.
=> Each Fedora team (and Red Hat internal team together) needs to work with corresponding Gnome teams. The mail will be posted in f-t-l once the below is cleared.
The issue of 'F10 version with GNOME2.24 of Fedora's gdm is missing some translated strings even the upstream version of GNOME2.24 has been fully translated on time'
=> Who will be the person in charge to pull 2.26 in for F11? What is the process?
Most of popular languages have now been updated to 100% or close to 100% in HEAD. The deadline is 13-Mar, thus those translation should all be included in GNOME2.26 (fi,pt_BR,ja,es,fr,it,ko_KR,de=100%, ru=93%, zh_TW,zh_CN=98% as at 11-Mar. every po file has same total 236 messages).
Description of problem:
The F10 version of Fedora's gdm is missing some translated strings, although the upstream version was fully translated in time for GNOME 2.24..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F9, F10 and up-coming F11 versions
Missing translated strings
F11 gdm have translated strings of GNOME2.26
Looks good now for ja - thanks :)
