I looked at both of these features briefly this morning. The first one
seems to just require tedious clicking through the GUI, which I started
The second is a bit more involved. In reality the translations are
using SVN. The translations are committed to the FreeNAS SVN repo
automatically every night, where they are then integrated into the
FreeNAS build. It's not clear to me how this would change that model,
or if it would change it at all, it looks like there would have to be
some sort of manual sync done. More troubling is the fact that when I
looked at this it appears that pootle is not picking up the changes to
the files that need to be translated. I hope to have some time this
weekend to take a look at all of this.
As far as a wiki page, pootle does not have a built in wiki, but trac
does, and we are using trac for support.freenas.org, which also has a
SVN browser, as well as an RSS feed. Perhaps the translation wikis
could be there, we use trac for a lot of project management type stuff
as it is. If that seems like a good idea we can go ahead and do that,
everyone will need accounts on support.freenas.org and then we'll create
a translators group that has the permissions to edit the appropriate
bah, so many services and logins the mailing list, pootle, trac....what
happened to single sign on.....
