Re: Debian menu entry translations for squeeze
Regarding this slightly aged thread, what is the status of the "menu" translation process?
I notice this file is not yet on Pootle. I agree with the questions about priority: it's a very large file. I am unsure how many of my users would end up using it. (Also, where is the FreeDesktop menu file we are also supposed to translate?)
For me personally, having "menu" on Pootle would work best. Having it accessible via git and having regular reminders to update it would be my second choice. If we can get RSS per file, that will certainly help.
Bill, please give me write access (clytie-guest).
Just to clarify: this is a different file from menu-sections, isn't it?

And that's why I wondered what the status was, two months later. ;)
