Re: String Change: anaconda

I very much agree with Renato, but I will continue on the translation
team, hope translating fedora becomes more translator-friendly than

2007/4/21, Renato Pavičić <repavici globalnet hr>:

First, I would like to express thanks for so late addition of lines. I
kinda missed those announced weekly 3-liners to system-config-printer. But
no fear, there are other additional lines that ar NOT announced. Luckily,
I have so much time between my 2 day jobs, 4 families, etc., to hang
around stats page and refresh it every 30 minutes...

But, let me return to the subject. Regarding sentence:

You will not be able to make changes to the partitioning of this disk or
use any partitions beyond /dev/%s15 in %s

Beyond what?
In what? In year 2008? That was my first thought. I'm no mind reader.

Now let me return to off-topic. I'm tired of this. There has been so much
talk about how to help translators, and only thing that I see is - nothing
that helps me.
I still have to download ALL po's on checkup.
I still have to manualy update each po (just to be on a safe side)
I still have to manualy check stats page, and I occasionaly miss 2-liners.

Since I've started on FC localization, I am still a translator, not a
programmmer, and I do not care what is easier to programmer. If you want
FC to be localized, I need help, not excuses or what is easisest for
programmer, like "Oh, then we have to switch this from that, buhuhuhu".
Sorry, guys, I have buhuhuhu each day here.
I work on other localizations, and there I have automatic PO updates,
annoucements and nicer stats.
There are TRUNK directories for modules under development, so I do not
have to translate 2-3 new lines added on WEEKLY basis, like in a case of
There are language directories, not PO directories.
So, I do not see how it is possible that only on FC localization such
stuff does not exist?
When FC6 was released, there were "assurances" that things I asked for
(announcements, automatic updates) will be fixed.

If you think that stuff I am moaning about are not relevant, please take a
hard look at stats page. What do you see there? Who are at top 15 palces?
Anybody NEW among top 15? No, always the same. What about botton half? Why
are they not making progress like top 15?
You may have a ready excuse - but you are wrong! If you were wright, they
would NOT be at so low rates for so long time.

I retire myself from FC localization. Just too much trouble, especialy
when compared to other, either smaller or larger localizations.
My work is for free, so please, do not reply to me in a manner "I work in
my free time and we try to do our best". Yeah, you are trying, but it has
So, If you wish to keep FC only for yourself, if you wish to dirve away
people that are "spoiled" with "intelligent" applications and gadgets
(like, automatic notifications) - you are on a right track.
I have very little free time and I do not want to spend it on dozen pages
for stats on this and that, reading bugs for spellcheck report - -
I can spend 1 hour for:
- translations or
- manualy updates or
- or writing complaints and moaning
- play some game
So, I choose fun.

Good bye, good luck, call me when you fix this problems.
Best regards
Renato Pavicic
