The release notes are actually specific to the test version they go
We have had situations where the content is only relevant for that test
release, and changes for the next test.
However, there certainly must be a better way. Are we unable to use an
ENTITY or XInclude? I forgot the status of that technique.
Unfortunately, the workings of xml2po and xmllint make this well-nigh
impossible for us. The lesser of two evils was to parse the entities
before they arrive in the POT file.
If this bothers you -- and I do sympathize, believe me -- when we switch
to Fedora Core 6 test3, you can do this:
sed -i 's/6 test2/6 test3/' XX.po # test2 -> test3
sed -i 's/6 test3/6/' XX.po # test3 -> final
That should take care of most everyone. I don't think anyone localizes
the string "test2" on its own since it's a program appellation. Are
there any reasons this wouldn't work for translators?
