manpages translations - where to put them?
|Reported by:||steko||Owned by:|
The GRASS Italian community (Marco Curreli being the leader by far) has been translating since some years (even though at a low pace) some GRASS commands manpages (the description.html part). We plan to translate them all, perhaps doing a Translation Sprint when possible. I have collected the existing translations at http://bitbucket.org/steko/grass-doc-it/ and I also plan to retrieve the existing translations which were done in the GFOSS.it wiki for GRASS GIS 6.0.2 and possibly update them.
The question is how to make these translations available to GRASS users? On the grass-translations list, Markus Neteler and I agreed that the best place would obviously be the GRASS source tree http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/grass-translations/2009-December/000544.html as Markus said "We need to modify the Makefile system to recognize the translated pages and generate the page header in the related locale."
I hope something can be done about this, it would make our work even more motivated.
