Re: Cannot import source for SchoolTool book using 'bzr'


Hi Karun,

I had caught the /flourish change and updated the book right before I
responded to you.  Maybe you still were getting a cached version or

For starters you should create a new branch, which you can just push to
your personal bzr repository on LP for now.

Sorry about the lack of clear instructions, tbh, it is partly from a lack
of knowing what the best way to approach the whole workflow.  The most
"correct" approach would be pretty technical sounding for a writing project.

The main point at this point I think is to create a directory structure
like this:

    |-- source
    |-- build
    |   `-- html
    |   `-- latex
    |-- i18n
    |   `-- fr
    |       |-- source
    |       |-- build
    |       |   `-- html
    |       |   `-- latex

(except for Hindi instead of French)

Copy the English source over and then translate it in place in the Hindi

I'm going to look a bit deeper into how OpenERP does it:

They seem to also use bzr, Launchpad and Sphinx.

Pretty much the only command you need to know for sphinx is "make html" in
a terminal from the project root directory.

Thanks for working on this Karun.  Douglas might have more insight.
 Unfortunately, as the native English speaker on the team, I understand
translation the least.
