Bug Description

udisks needs generate POT file on build so that it could be imported into Launchpad and accept translations from translators.


Binary package hint: udisks

Udisks provides some translatable strings, but unfortunately upstream developers was never interested in managing translation.

Translatable messages are extracted from PolicyKit .policy files and will showed sometimes when authenticating you to perform some actions (mount, unmount, check..). So are really important to understand sensible tasks and run consciously. If I'm right, those translations should be placed inside .policy file at build time (i.e you can't rely on .MO file), so a patch will be needed.

I will generate and upload a pot first as a workaround, but the package still need changes to make it generate a POT on build.

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * debian/control: Prefer building against current libparted0-dev. Add
    alternative libparted-dev build dependency as well.
  * debian/rules: Build a PO template during package build, to have an up to
    date one for translators. (LP: #538320)
  * Drop debian/local/ubuntu.pkla again: This will be provided by a new
    policykit-desktop-permissions package.

  [ Michael Biebl ]
  * New upstream release.
    - Clean up stale mounts from devices in /etc/fstab, too. (LP: #476654)
    - Fix recognition of unpartitioned VFAT drives, which were previously
      misdetected as MBR. (LP: #536670)
    - Use lseek64() instead of lseek() in job-drive-benchmark.c, to also work
      with large devices. (LP: #526524)
  * Refresh patches.
