guilt and translations
July 13, 2007
So I was pleasantly helping dimitris glezos this morning with a package that was missing on one of the app servers and as a thank you he decided to drop the translations-bomb on me. Specifically: yum and translations: not so much. Evidence of this can be seen here:
Now, we used to have marginally better translation support, and then the logging items changed and, well, it never really came back correctly. There are a couple of outstanding problems in the logging infrastructure in yum. Specifically that as a programmer trying to figure out what will and will not get logged when you make a logging call like:
self.verbose_logger.log(logginglevels.INFO_2, ‘–> Populating transaction ‘with selected packages. Please wait.’)
is not entirely obvious due to the conflation of the old-style logging with the new-style logging. Additionally:
is a wee-bit long of a preamble to saying “stuff happened”
Anyway – long and short – Dimitris is right, translation needs to happen, too and this is an excellent place for someone to look at fixing a discrete item in yum that doesn’t get them buried in depsolving code or sqlite.
In short: Patches are welcome.
