Subject: language files and patches
From: for_spam_at_gmx.de
Date: 2003-04-21


Hello,

i`m currently doing a patch for menu_settings.c which also needs additional
entries in
the language files.

I`m a little bit confused regarding changes to language files.

in english.lang:

# *WARNING*
#
# If you want to add a new string, add it to the end of this file!
# If you want to remove a string, just blank it, don't actually remove it!
#
# If you re-order things or remove entries, you must bump the binary
language
# file version number in both the 'binlang' tool and the language loader
code.
#

but in recent cvs commit the following lines have been inserted in the
middle, not at the end:
id: LANG_STATUS_BAR
id: LANG_SCROLL_BAR

is the warning message depreciated or did someone make a mistake ?

furthermore, what about a "indicator" on the website if the language file is
in sync (how much & what is out of sync) with the english one?
so one could see, if it is "good" or if it needs maintenance (and which ID`s
need maintenance).
This would help keeping the language files more "up to date",IMHO

regards
roland

ps:
what about a "global" languagefile?

id: IDENTIFIER
desc: DESCRIPTION TEXT
eng: "english menu text"
ger: "german translation"
dan: "dansk translation"
esp: "spanish translation"
...
...

If an id/desc or whatelse is added or gets depreciated, changes would
perhaps be easier to do and to maintain.
