It's working, it just hasn't got a helptext. It does exactly what is needed for
various makefiles using the old version. It should probably get one.

Any chance of having this back at some point?

Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2002-08-24 21:38:58 UTC
Maybe msghack should be evaluated against the current utils in gettext and maybe
removed if there's little or no functionality added by msghack?

Comment 4 Kjartan Maraas 2003-01-15 13:03:29 UTC
Close, implement, WONTFIX?

Comment 5 Leon Ho 2003-01-16 00:56:08 UTC
I have now port the online help from the anicent msghack. Keep that in mind it was 
created for supporting various Makefiles which uses old version. 
0.11.4-6 has the update. Thanks for your report.
