Yes, please!

Why you think yast is more important than the other applications in the file?

It certainly is more important. Very much so!

When we translated the Yast branch we expected yast to display everything is Spanish, but this ws not so. We were told that some messages where placed instead in update-desktop-files.

So I translated that lonnnnnng file, and after the patch was made and published, I learnt that the translations in update-desktop-files were not to be applied. That was a dissapointment after a month of work.

So, yes, we are very interested in having the yast part separated, and posibly moved to the Yast branch. Yast is the single most visible program of Opensuse, and the most important of all.

The rest of the messages I don't think are important. After all, lots of them are left in English, anyway...


I don't think it's less important, but if you have one po file with
7562 strings where are approx. 3000 untranslated or fuzzy no one wants
to pick up and translate all of the strings, neither even touch it.
And I would have rather fully translated entries in YaST2 control
center than other entries in KDE/GNOME menu.
What do you think users will appreciate more?

I think the same.
