hi samizdat-devel, imc-japan,
This is a patch for samizdat as described below. Personally i think it's
better to show articles in a lower priority language rather than not show
them at all. However, i understand that for some people this is discouraging.
So here's a patch which i think paul from imc japan may like. :)
A working example is to go to the IMC Torun site:
Click on "Deutsch" or [Nihongo] - you'll see a mix of articles, mostly
not in these languages. Now click on "mono" - top right. For Nihongo,
at the moment you'll see almost nothing, since almost no articles have
been translated (sumimasen...). For Deutsch you will see a small bunch
of articles, both features and non-features. (If you try Polish,
English or French, there should be almost no difference with mono or without,
since many languages are in several of these languages.)
This solution should hopefully keep everyone happy - monolinguists and
multilinguists - with just one click difference.
The patch version 0.1 does not "monolingualise" (ignore non-preferred
language versions) of "theme" articles which are calendar dates and are
shown in the centre column with version 0.5 of the calendar patch.
A comment that this should/could be fixed has been added to the entry
for this patch:
These type of entries (you can see one example on torun.indy right now)
normally only take up a few lines, so provided that several features have
been translated into the preferred language (not the case for Nihongo
on torun.indy right now, but is the case for de/en/fr), this should
hopefully not upset the monolingual reader too much.
