PO translations for the package apt-show-versions



Dear Debian I18N people,

I would like to know if some of you would be interested in translating
apt-show-versions.

apt-show-versions already includes es.po fr.po sv.po.
So do not translate it to these languages (the translators will be
contacted separately).

language        translated     fuzzy     untranslated
-----------------------------------------------------
  es                57
  fr                57
  sv                53                         4

Please send the updated file to me, or submit it as a wishlist bug
against apt-show-versions.
The deadline for receiving the updated translation is 12.04.2008.

If you have read so far, please find the POT file in attachement.

Thanks in advance,

Apt-Show-Versions v.$ASV_VERSION (c) Christoph Martin

Usage:
 apt-show-versions         shows available versions of installed packages.

Options:
 -stf|--status-file=<file>  Use <file> as the dpkg status file instead
                            of /var/lib/dpkg/status
 -ld|list-dir=<directory>   Use <directory> as path to apt's list files instead
                            of /var/state/apt/lists/ or /var/lib/apt/lists/
 -p|--package=<package>     Print versions for <package>.
 -r|--regex                 Read package with -p as regex
 -R|--regex-all             Like --regex, but also show not installed packages.
 -u|--upgradeable           Print only upgradeable packages
 -a|--allversions           Print all available versions.
 -b|--brief                 Short output.
 -nh|--nohold               Don't treat holded packages.
 -i|--initialize            Initialize or update package cache only (as root).
 -v|--verbose               Verbose messages.
 -h|--help                  Print this help.

=head1 NAME

apt-show-versions - Lists available package versions with distribution

=head1 DESCRIPTION

apt-show-versions parses the dpkg status file and the APT lists for
the installed and available package versions and distribution and
shows upgrade options within the specific distribution of the selected
package.

This is really useful if you have a mixed stable/testing environment
and want to list all packages which are from testing and can be
upgraded in testing.

apt-show-versions uses caching for the status information of installed
and available packages. If you run apt-show-versions as root the
cache is updated as needed. If you run as non-root uses the newest
available information, but can't update the cache. If you run as root
with the option B<-i> the cache is initialized or updated only.

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<apt-show-versions> [B<-h>] [[B<-p>] I<package name>] [B<-a>] [B<-b>]

=head1 OPTIONS

If you don't give any options the status of all installed packages is
printed.

=over 4

=item B<-p> I<package>, B<--package>=I<package>

Print available and installed versions for specified I<package>. You
can also specify a package name without the option B<-p>. If B<-p> and
a package name are missing, all installed packages are displayed.

=item B<-r>, B<--regex>

interpret I<package> from option B<-p> as a regex.

=item B<-R>, B<--regex-all>

like B<--regex>, but also show matching packages which are not installed

=item B<-u>, B<--upgradeable>

Print only upgradeable packages

=item B<-a>, B<--allversions>

Print all available versions of the selected packages

=item B<-b>, B<--brief>

Print only package_name/distribution for upgradeable packages

=item B<-v>, B<--verbose>

Prints out verbose messages.

=item B<-i>, B<--initialize>

Initialize or update package cache only (as root). Do this every time
when the status of the installed or available packages has changed.

=item B<-stf> I<file>, B<--status-file>=I<file>

Use I<file> as the dpkg status file instead of /var/lib/dpkg/status

=item B<-ld> I<directory>, B<--list-dir>=I<directory>

Use I<directory> as path to apt's list files instead of
/var/state/apt/lists/ or /var/lib/apt/lists/

=item B<-h>, B<--help>

Prints out command-line help.

=back

=head1 EXIT CODES

=over 4

=item 0

No error

=item 1

Wrong usage

=item 2

apt-show-versions has been called with exactly one package and upgradeable
option set, but package is uptodate. As no output has been requested, this
case gets signaled using the exit code.

=item 255

Unspecified error

=back

=head1 EXAMPLES

If you want to know for all your installed packages whether they are
uptodate or upgradeable, use:

    apt-show-versions

If you want to have a list of all upgradeable packages:

    apt-show-versions -u

To get a list of all available versions of libc6:

    apt-show-versions -a -p libc6

To get information about several packages:

    apt-show-versions dpkg apt

    apt-show-versions -r ^texlive

To upgrade all packages in testing:

    apt-get install `apt-show-versions -u -b | fgrep testing`
