wireguard-windows uses x/text's .gotext.json format, per the docs, and it seems to work. However, we're now interested in crowdsourcing this out using the various pieces of software that take well-known formats. The gotext.json format is known basically nowhere. However, the GNU Gettext format is, and it looks like there's some support for that in x/text. What's needed is a way to convert back and forth, losslessly, between gettext and .gotext.json. I'm wondering if something like this already exists, or if there might be theoretical concerns with doing that. Or if there's a better way to address the overall issue. I figure it's best to elicit some feedback before I embark on implementing a strategy, as I assume the x/text authors have some opinions on the matter.

Hi there,

Unlike many projects, the Go project does not use GitHub Issues for general discussion or asking questions. GitHub Issues are used for tracking bugs and proposals only.

For asking questions, see:

Please ask the question on one of the above forums.
