Hello, this is my question:
Recently, two of our translation team members (I and another member)
accidentaly worked on the same .po file. I didn't notice that he has
already "Take"n the file. Sometime after, I did a "cvs up" and our
translations didn't match. So I had some lines in the file which pointed
my version and his versio delimited by ">>>>> his trans ===== my trans
<<<<<<" and so on. It was hard to remove them manually, since a lot of
work has been done. I solved this by deleting the .po file and did a
"cvs up" again, which downloaded his version only. Is there a way to
overwrite my changes when updating using some cvs commands?
Hello, Red Hat team!
Does Red Hat internationalization/translation team plans to coordinate
translation of "man" and "info" pages
for packages related to Red Hat and Fedora distros.
I think it is good idea to coordinate translation of core packages like
RPM, BASH, KUDZU, NET-TOOLS.
At this moment we has good mechanism of translation, notification of
changes, team organization for user interface.
Existing translation teams can also provide good quality of "man" and
The only dificulty I see is to organize this process of translations.

I have a bookmark for the translation status page
(http://elvis.redhat.com/cgi-bin/i18n-status). But I very rarely look
at the status for any other language than my own (Swedish). I figured
out that by adding "?locale=sv" to the URL, I could get the menu
preset to Swedish so I only had to press the button.
But pressing the button doesn't really add anything. I would prefer
to directly bookmark the status page itself but haven't figured out a
way to do that. Do I miss something, or isn't there a way to do that?
There is a new package available for translation: system-switch-im. To
check out the po files, you can either re-check out the whole translate/
module, or change to your ~/translate/ directory and perform the
cvs co po_system-switch-im
As I understand description of status pages is generated for specspo
But now this descriptions is not refreshed regulary as translation
I found mistake in Russian translation of description of switchdesk
module - it said about 'redhat-switch-printer' utility instead of
'switchdesk' utility. This translation was 'fuzzy' for FC2 and now it is
Could you regenerate status pages descriptions again.
In addition please note that some modules (for example,
system-config-bind) has no translated description at status page,
but specspo now has ( as redhat-config-bind )
I recieve this when I try to checkot a file.
[08:31:33][tome][~/fedora/translate] cvs co specspo/mk.po
cvs server: warning: new-born specspo/mk.po has disappeared
Anyone knows what this means?

Do something that should have been done a long time ago.
