RPM comes with Swedish message catlaogues.  But they are very old and
inaccurate.  To the point where they are more confusing than of help.  So I
made an effort and translated all untranslated and all "fuzzy" messages in
the po-file from 3.0.3.

The primary reason to do this was for my own use.  But maybe you would like
to use the translations in the official future versions of RPM too?  I
enclose them for your consideration.  I'm not trying to usurp any official
translator you may have. Only since he/she apparently hasn't had the time
to translate recent versions, I offer my help if you (and/or he/she) want

I would also like to take the opportunity to invite you to use the Free
Translation Project (http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/contrib/po/HTML/) for
administration and coordination of translations of RPM and other
internationalised packages.  I have found its services quite convenient and

I've added your updated sv.po to rpm-3.0.4. Any assistance in updating
translations will be gratefully received since, except for de,fr,es, we
depend on volunteers for updated translations.

Message catalogues for most of the Red Hat packages are updated through an
automated service as part of i18n-list. You might want to subscribe
(mail to i18n-list-request), and the help file should provide
details on how to update a catalogue. Rpm, for odd reasons, is not part of
that, so your update is particaulrly appreciated.
