Status in “cups” package in Ubuntu:
Currently, we export the cups template along the other .mo files in
the language packs. This is however, not what the software expects,
thus not useful at all.
Cups expects the files to be in /usr/share/cups/locale/ll, in the file
name format of cups_ll.po and in PO format. The cups-common package
ships the existing translations this way:
So, what we should do is:
-stop distributing the .mo files
-add cups to the https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline page, and export translations before Maverick is out.
: seems that while cups uses the po format for translation, it does
not use gettext for using the translations in the code, but reads
directly the po files.
