#18147 confirmed defect

Use version-suffix for installed message catalogs

Reported by: yurivict Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: 3.2.0
Component: translations Version: 3.0.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Patch: no


The file share/locale/it/LC_MESSAGES/ is installed by wxWIdgets 30 and 31, and since it doesn't follow the naming pattern it causes a conflict. It looks like a stray file, because translation for Italian already exists.

I don't really understand where does 31 suffix in the message catalog names comes from. The locale_install target in wxWidgets own Makefile uses, so it looks like something else renames them (and hopefully updates src/common/translation.cpp to use the versioned name) and, presumably, this "something else" should just rename too.

So where exactly do these files come from? Some packaging system, I guess, but which one?

This comes from the FreeBSD port x11-toolkits/wxgtk31
All wxgtkNN ports have digits there.

  • Milestone set to 3.2.0
  • Status changed from new to confirmed
  • Summary changed from Installs stray translations file share/locale/it/LC_MESSAGES/ to Use version-suffix for installed message catalogs

The simplest fix for FreeBSD would be to just not include at all -- this MSW-specific file is not of much use under FreeBSD.

More generally speaking, I think we need to handle this somehow in wxWidgets itself as, looking at the other packages, all of them do use a version-specific suffix.

It would be nice to do this before 3.2.0. Any help would be welcome, as usual.

I am removing this in the port to prevent conflicts.
But it's best if you fix this in the project.
I have no idea what this file is or where it comes from. :-)

Just FYI, this file contains MSW-specific overrides for Italian translations.

And yes, I think we should handle versioning of the message catalogs in our own makefiles. It "just" remains to actually do it...
