[GnomeMeeting-devel-list] Moving to gnome-doc-utils


attached is a patch for moving to gnome-doc-utils.

What is it all about?
The strings to translate are extracted from the english gnomemeeting.xml and 
put into an pot. Translators can then use this to create a po with their 
translations commit these po's to cvs. During 'make dist' the translations 
are merged into the english gnomemeeting.xml, which holds the structural 
information, and a gnomemeeting-<lang>.xml is created, so the dist tarball 
holds (almost) the same files as before.

What are the benefits?
First, the translators are used to po's, the gui translation can be used as a 
compendium to create a consistent translation.
Second, when the documentation is changed (added/removed/changed paragraphs), 
only the translations for this paragraphs are marked untranslated/fuzzy, 
which makes tracking documentation changes much easier.
Last but not least, there are translation statistics for the documentation, 
and who wants to be the only one not reaching 100% :-) -> more documentation 

What has to be done?
* @damien
	- make sure you have a recent enough gnome-common (2005-07-19) 
	- Apply the attached patches
	- remove the files mentioned in 'files-to-remove'
	- commit fr.po to help/fr/fr.po
* @translators
	- wait for gnomemeeting to appear on 
	- grab the pot and translate
* @packagers
	- nothing changes
