Description

A first step for having a new lang/ tree for Squeeze is to collect all the possible translation files from the official Squeeze packages. The process is the following:

  1. list all apps on Transifex
  2. get the source code of the application Debian packages
  3. extract PO/POT files
  4. recreate a new lang/ tree

To get the source code of an official Debian package, the command is the following:

apt-get source <packagename>

You get in the current directory several files and a directory of the application name. Of course, to do this, you need a running Debian-like system (DDL, Ubuntu or… Debian!) with only one line starting with deb-src in the configuration file /etc/apt/sources.list. The line to be added is the following:

deb-src http://ftp2.fr.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

It just tells apt-get to fetch source packages from Debian Squeeze.

The lang/ tree to be recreated is currently the following:
