software-properties-gtk zh_TW & zh_HK l10n unsync with rosetta

Bug #365040 reported by Roy Chan on 2009-04-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The application name of software-properties on Ubuntu menu is miss-translated as "Software source code" instead of "Software Source" in 0.71.5 (Jaunty). It was an old problem but should already being fixed around Feisty via Launchpad Rosetta.

However, recently, I found the the correct translation NEVER being sync in the official software-properties source code. But the correct translation still appear among Feisty to Intrepid because it used the .mo in package language-pack-zh-base which synced with Launchpad Rosetta.

In Jaunty, software-properties use it's own outdated .mo instead of the one of package language-pack-zh-base. This make the wrong translation of the program name back again. It is may be serious problem while it is the name show in the main menu and may confuse new chinese user. Moreover, it also cause the the translation of Debian Lenny's software-properties incorrect as jaunty now.
