Description Timur Bakeyev 2005-01-19 20:18:00 UTC
Hi!

I'm not 100% sure, but my overall feeling from swat/lang/ localization is that
it's useless. At the moment at least distributions come with:

lang/tr
lang/tr/images
lang/tr/images/viewconfig.gif
lang/tr/images/passwd.gif
lang/tr/images/globals.gif
lang/tr/images/samba.gif
lang/tr/images/status.gif
lang/tr/images/shares.gif
lang/tr/images/printers.gif
lang/tr/images/home.gif
lang/tr/help
lang/tr/help/welcome.html
lang/ja/help
lang/ja/help/welcome.html

And that's it. So, the only "localization" you may get is a welcome message, any
of the documentation still is in english only... So, it's more misleading rather
than helpful - if you, on whatever reason don't know english, that documentation
won't help you at all...

So my question is - does it really make sence to keep this pages there?

those files which reside there are being used, for example the Turkish images
with translated text in it. If you want more pages to be translated, feel free
to do more translations ;-). Removing translations because not *everything* is
translated isn't useful.

originally reported against 3.0.11pre1.  Moving back to version to 3.0.10 
to remove preX and rcX versions.
