Hello L10n folks!
String freeze is coming and I'd like to have some strings translated.
However, I'm facing problems with two specific modules.
There is a "About This Computer" string in Fedora's gnome menu that is
not actually from gnome-system-monitor, gnome-menus or redhat-menus.
This a Fedora customization. There is a wiki page where this string was
I remember I have translated it for Fedora 6 but I don't remember
where the string is.
My translation, the current translation in Fedora 10 System menu, is
not the same as the one in the wiki page .
other languages also need to translate/update this string, but IMHO this
is not a good way to do this and I am not sure what component should I
file a bug against.
When I see something untranslated, or a translation that bothers me, I
translate the module and submit it in transifex. Then, in the next two
weeks or less, a package update comes in the update system.
I feel comfortable with this method, because there's no need to file a bug.
The other issue is about GDM. Probably due to downstream
in Fedora and gdm rewrite, some strings are in English even if the
upstream is a 100% translated. The "Password" string is one example.
There is a bug filed for this  but it is almost one year old. I would
like to know if this is still only happening with pt_BR or other
languages too. This happened in F10 and is happening again in Rawhide
It happens in Spanish too.
It would be nice to have that string translated.
