Forum OpenACS Development: I18N Message Catalog Upgrades with Merging now Fully Supported

We have now completed and tested the previously somewhat tentative upgrade support for catalog files and committed it on the oacs-50 branch. This means that going forward upgrades of the translation server will be much smoother than before. It also means that translation work done on different servers can be merged.

Note though that any conflict resolution still requires manual work by translators and that having only one canonical server to do translations on is still probably preferable.

See the comment for version of the file and the proc lang::catalog::import_messages for details.

Thank you so much for this work. I know a bunch of translators that will be thankful ;)


P.S. Distributed translation (with some kind of submission and management mechanism) would be more than interesting. Looking forward to the future (post 5.0).
