- Helping Kdesvn
Currently I develop mostly alone. And I have my personal reasons not putting it into the KDE repository. But that means that sometimes developing moves slow. So if interested in help you may take a look on the items below.
Every trac account here may work as a subversion account, too. So if you plan helping a little bit longer or more you may create an account here and than tell me about and what you plan. Than I will give you the commit rights. Don't forget to set a valid email address, all communication about an account I'll do with that email. And resetting passwords will work only with such an address, too.
If you just have a patch, you may send it to me via email or via the bugtracker and ticket sytem of this site.
- Check out the latest version of kdesvn. This moment you should use the trunk.
- Inside the subdirectory "po" you will find a file "kdesvn.pot". Copy this to <language-code>.po where language-code> is the two letter country- and language-code KDE uses. You may take a look on http://i18n.kde.org/docs/translation-howto/starting-translation.html, too.
If the translation file exists and you just want to update it than just see next points.
- Edit the new file with lokalize, don't forget to insert the information about the translator ;). Of course you may use any other editor than lokalize - but I'm sure with lokalize it is easier and it results in less errors.
- Send this file to me, if you edited an existing translation you may send me a patch instead (best made with subversion-diff, than I see the revision made against). Or you want get a subversion account so you may commit yourself.
For a developer it is hard to write documentations. We know what we did, we have our special view on our software. And we have no time for it ;) Feel free edit the handbook of kdesvn and send me patches (or again: ask for an account). If you don't want edit xsl-based-docbook you may send me textblocks as simple ascii - I'll insert it.
