View Full Version : launchpad and .POT files

September 28th, 2009, 08:35 PM
Is it possible to create .Pot file by hand (not using gettext) and use it with launchpad?

I'm translating an opensource game (freespace 2) and i would like to put text to translate in an opensource environment which everyone can contribute to.
Is it possible with launchpad? how?
Do you know some website else to do it?

Thanks to all

pot files are plaintext, of course you can make them by hand =)

But does launchpad give a negative answer if the project is not allowed or not valid....or only does not answer?

Because it's about 2 day that i try....but everyhing "need review".....

Oh you'll more likely have to wait around a week, possibly more. This is why I left Launchpad for my project, you can never do things when you want to, only when Launchpad says you can.

Do you know somewhere else which i can try to?

I need only a place(with opensource policy) to host to everyone the text to translate with or without gettext but with about the same sharing system.
I made also some dummy script in python to use with gettext and generate pot file, to let it look like a project for launchpad :-) .
