Desktop File Translations

A collection of .po files with translations for .desktop files in openSUSE and the tools to maintain them.

Workflow

The whole process has three parts, two smaller ones that are maintained as packages in OBS, and a big one that connects everything, here in this repository.

  1. update-desktop-files: All .desktop files are collected from packages in OBS during the build process by the brp-trim-desktop.sh script. During this process the translations are stripped from the .desktop files and placed in a standard location, in slightly compressed form, to make them easy to collect through the OBS API for further processing.

  2. desktop-file-translations: The .po files in the GitHub repository are regularly updated by running the tools under 51-xml/download_data.sh and 51-xml/generate_and_merge_pos.sh scripts and then committing the results. The first script fetches the compressed .desktop files from the OBS API, and the second turns them into .po files, and merges the results into the already existing .po files in the repository.

  3. desktop-translations: This package contains a _service file referring to the desktop-file-translations GitHub repository, and uses the script 50-tools/build-entries-po.sh to turn the .po files from the repository into entries.po files that can be installed with openSUSE.

Updating the .po files automatically

The .po files in this repository need to be updated in regular intervals, this process can be automated with the files in 51-xml/. Read the file README.md contained within for instructions.
