Re: [yast-devel] YaST in Ruby and string to be translated
Dne 1.8.2013 18:59, Andrea Turrini napsal(a):
I have just noted that the POT files for YaST have been updated,
probably as the result of the conversion of YaST in Ruby.

As a result, the msgid strings now contain "\\n" instead of "\n" to
denote the new line inside the same msgid.

For instance, in printer.pot, the current string is

msgid "Started the CUPS daemon.\\nWaiting half a minute for the CUPS
daemon to get ready to operate...\\n"

while before it was

msgid ""
"Started the CUPS daemon.\n"
"Waiting half a minute for the CUPS daemon to get ready to operate...\n"

Now, the question is: is this change expected and wanted?

On the first sight it looks like a bug of a string extraction tool for Ruby (rxgettext). Ladislav (in CC) is looking at the problem now more deeply.

We'll send an update once we know more.
