Anyway, going back to the introduction of translation-update-upstream.
I'd like to hear feedback from people outside of the GNOME team, since
it will also be used for non-GNOME packages at some point, I guess.
Personally, I'm really mixed with having to edit all spec files to add
support for this, but if everybody is fine with it, then I guess it's a
non-issue and we'll just do it this way..

There's been no feedback from non-GNOME packagers :/ I would have loved
to get some, especially since it will probably affect non-GNOME packages
at some point...

Stanislav: just one thing before I start accepting your submissions. For
openSUSE, can you configure the tool to only look at latest upstream
translations from the right branch?

It does never look to upstream during the compilation. It looks to
translation-update-upstream package.

When searching for strings, it should look at branch the current GNOME
come from and all newer branches.

As the merge is not a quick operation (several hours), and it may
require manual action (fix strings in GNOME svn or skip buggy files),
it's not started automatically.

I will empty this package soon and start populating again after freeze,
and the package will become dummy for now.

(we might want to do exceptions to this rule later, but right now, I
don't think it makes sense for us to look at non-upstream translations)

If you find a package, where lookup to older branches makes sense,
please let me know. I know just only about gnome-applets (we recycle old
modem applet), but we migrated these strings to gnome-patch-translation

Anyway, look at translation-update-upstream package source at
*.tlst files with the current configuration.
