python's gettext.gettext broken, use gettext.lgettext
While I was hacking at debconf, I noticed that
python's gettext function returns strings encoded in the
original encoding; which will appear as garbage on
With python2.4, lgettext is added, which seems to do
the right thing and return the string encoded in the
#318578 (linda), #318581 (apt-listchanges) is a workaround
for 2.3, which looks slightly large, but workable.
+ my_ugettext = gettext.translation('apt-listchanges').ugettext
+ def lgettext(msgid):
+ return my_ugettext(msgid).encode(gettext_encoding)
+ _ = lgettext
Correct me if I'm missing something, since python is not
my best language.
