Hey guys, a (lame) question, what are .mo files?

I have made a little tool to scan .rpm's for missing files, and a lot of .mo files are showing up in the localised dir's.. Should these be included in a binary distribution or should they be specificly excluded?

Thanks in advance for enlightening a clueless person ;-)

These are compiled translation files. They MUST be included in all binary distributions! Otherwise the app will not be localized.

In every app, there is a toplevel po/ dir with .po files, which are compiled with msgfmt to .gmo files. When installed, they are put in $PREFIX/share/locale/$LANG/LC_MESSAGES/$

Maybe the script does not understand -> rename?
