[Fwd: major libgweather Locations updates]

Da die deutsche Uebersetzung von 2.24 heute 5% verloren hat (siehe
Anhang), werd ich mich mal an libgweather setzen. Nur damit kein anderer
die gleiche Zeit daran verschwendet.

I've just committed a huge update to libgweather's Locations.xml.in.
>From an i18n perspective, the big changes are that a lot of strings
representing airport names, etc, went away and were replaced with actual
city names. Also, many city names in some countries were replaced with
better-localized/better-transliterated versions.

This is unfortunately a huge amount of churn in an already-huge list of
translatable strings. Two suggestions:

    1) Search the po file comments for "This is the capital of", which
       will let you find national capitals, which are presumably more
       likely than average to need special translations. Also, search
       for "is the traditional English name" to find cities that are
       called something different in English than they are in the
       local language, which usually also points to the need for a

    2) Other than that, wait a week or so (or more) before translating
       anything, and don't clean out the now-unused translations right
       away, because we'll be requesting some help from gnome-love
       which may result in some lame cities being removed and other ones
       being renamed, etc. Also, once GNOME 2.23.6 is out there, we're
       going to bump the intltool requirement to the latest version,
       which will let us add msgctxts to disambiguate duplicate names
       (eg the US state of Georgia vs the former Soviet Republic of

libgweather/po-locations/ although some translators apparently know. Any
hints? It seems like we ought to have a Makefile rule that does that...
