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.
Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2002-07-23 19:33:15 EDT
Any chance of having this back at some point?
Comment 3 Kjartan Maraas 2002-08-24 17:38:58 EDT
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 08:03:29 EST
Close, implement, WONTFIX?
Comment 5 Leon Ho 2003-01-15 19:56:08 EST
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.
