The tool I have used till now, manedit, doesn't build in x64. I'd like something similar or better... but there is nothing. :-(
I established a new project home:jnweiger:doc manedit is there, po4a too. Freshly compiled, untested. Let me know if you can make any use of these...
Thanks! I didn't notice your message till now. Yes, manedit runs, which will allow me at least to update the few manpages I translate, for the moment. Phillipp says that as it is based on gtk1 it will not be possible to compile for factory as gtk-devel is or will be dropped, so I will have to find something else soon, or keep 11.2 as a vmware guest for the (opensource) abandonware I still use.
I'm curious. Where did you got the two patches you added? Did you create them from scratch, are they somewhere to be found for people to use...? :-?
The question remains, the one that made me ask in this list, is what can be done to increase the number of manual pages translated, and to keep them updated?
For example, there are 11574 English man pages in my 11.2 installation, and only 91 are translated to Spanish (±7 of those are mine), 42 to German, 42 + 9 + 9 to French... Info pages: none. This is pathetic.
I believe one of the reasons is that there are no friendly tools (that's my excuse). Other reasons... I have no idea. Lack of interest? Why?
You see, you can only send English speaking users to RTFM (flipping!) :-P
