[Sorry if this is a duplicate. I got an error the first time I sent it.]

Hello Ineiev,

I tried to figure out which files are really needed by
and the scripts it uses. This is what I found:

* a subset of www, with POs for a given language and corresponding POTs
(assuming all the translations are GNUNified) + and;
* gnun-diff-po and diff-po.awk;
* gnun-add-fuzzy-diff and add-fuzzy-diff.

The problem is that gnun-diff-po calls /usr/local/bin/msgcat and
/usr/local/bin/msgfmt. On the server, this corresponds to version
0.18.1, not to the normal gettext installation. On the translator's
machine, there is usually no Gettext tools in /usr/local/.

It would be nice if the gnun package provided version 0.18.1 of msgcat,
msgfmt and required libraries ( and I don't know whether both are needed).

Better yet: make a special package with only the files required by
A script for checking out a subset of www would be a useful addition.
Then of course the -d option of 'cvs update' would need to be removed.

_About the 'notify' target_

I replaced bg with fr in the TEAM_URL_PREFIX and TEAM_URL_POSTFIX, and
tried this URL:*checkout*/www-fr/

Guess what... It worked, but the last update was on 2012-11-03!
This is about the time we moved to Git.

I'm not sure there is a generic URL to download the latest version of a
file from a Git repo. So the best would probably be to leave
TEAM_URL_PREFIX and TEAM_URL_POSTFIX undefined, and give the CVS example
in a comment.

Thanks in advance,
