Description

The following errors are seen when installing Trac with easy_install. It is always discomforting to see errors on the screen when installing a package. It would be nice if we could tweak the localization to avoid the errors, or somehow silence them.

We could add a fuzzy marker to the first msgid "" to skip it.

After the patch, compile_catalog -l ca command would skip to compile it.

$ make compile-ca
python setup.py  compile_catalog -l ca  compile_catalog_js -l ca  compile_catalog_tracini -l ca \
            generate_messages_js -l ca

It looks like the issues may not exist in the catalog on Transifex, but I'll have to look closer to be sure. Maybe we could just pull down the latest catalog. More generally, we need to address the problem soon of syncing with the Transifex translations.

Okay, let's mark as fuzzy unless someone can fix issues with the translation.

@jordi: would you be able to take a look?

comment:6 by Jordi Mallach, 6 years ago

Wow, I wonder how this started happening out of the blue. I'll have a look ASAP!

comment:7 by Jordi Mallach, 5 years ago

I am puzzled at this. The catalog in SVN did compile correctly.

Are you by any chance telling msgfmt to accept fuzzy entries? (-f switch) That would be terrible.

I also see some commits from cboos where po files are updated using -N. If this -N arg is being passed to msgmerge, I believe quite some translation work is being lost.

So, not diving into Babel internals, what could be happening is the mix of the two:

Message catalogs like mine, which may contain fuzzy strings if I didn't complete a translation up to 100% translated, are being compiled with msgfmt -f, which is basically telling gettext "treat fuzzy strings as valid ones". If those fuzzy strings have incompatible placeholders, you get the error messages above.

To mitigate this, fuzzy strings are being avoided by using -N, which really is terrible as we're discarding nearly-good translations that only lack whitespace change etc. just to avoid them being marked as fuzzy.

I'm sorry if the above is all nonsense, as I said I didn't dive into the compile_catalog functions in Babel, but if this is the case, the fix is easy: stop validating fuzzy strings (via msgfmt -f) and continue doing fuzzy matching in msgmerge as fuzzy strings are awesome (if not used in the compiled version).

In any case, I did a massive update of Catalan in the stable branch, just missing the longer messages I don't have time to look at now.

I don't know enough about Trac's usage of Babel to determine what is going on. Thank you for the comments, and I'll try to revisit this when I have some time to dive deeper into the code.
