Ticket #499 (invalid bug)

Get rid of mo files

  • Created: 2011-09-21 22:20:06
  • Reported by: Franz
  • Assigned to: None
  • Milestone: 2.0-beta1
  • Component: localization
  • Priority: normal

The language files are created in po format, before they are converted to mo format, which is being read and then cached as PHP.

Is this really necessary? And if so, we probably still don't want to store the mo files in the repository. Do we want to generate them when packaging up releases? What does that do to those of us just playing with development builds?

extra info: most free hosting servers will limit the file extension, so .mo or .po might not be a good idea.

  • Status changed from open to invalid.

So, no Gettext files after all.
