Re: [PKG-Openstack-devel] Please re-use other packages debconf translations when introducing new OpenStack packages

(thanks for your quick answer, as usual, Thomas)

Quoting Thomas Goirand (zigo@debian.org):

My suggestion would be picking up Neutron translations. Just copy PO
files from neutron's debian/po to designate's debian/po, then run

That should lead to PO files with some fuzzy strings (but very easy to
fix, mostly by s/Neutron/Designate....but leave that up to
translators) and a few untranslated ones, which translators will have
no problem completing.

At least this will save them a lot of work.

Don't try to "fix" PO files, though. That will be too dangerous and
mostly useless...
