I'm at the Inkscape Hackfest here in Paris and we were wondering if it
would be good or bad to remove the pot file and po files from the
master branch and separate them out into their own repository.
The pot file gets modified on each make, and it's causing some minor
issues for developers. So the preference for developers is for removal.
But this depends very heavily on HOW translations for inkscape are
done. If they are done 'in-place' or if translators expect to use a
service like launchpad translations which keeps track of everything.
Please let us know what you would like us to do with pot and po files
Best Regards, Martin Owens

That's what I suspected. I also suspect it wasn't always the case that
the pot is regenerated upon each build/commit - must be a recent
change. I just wanted to note that another solution would be to go
back to manual regeneration of the .pot file as a separate make
Hope you’re doing well.
I am slowly sorting out a few things I came across with on the website, one of those being some items of the main Menu that were not translated. I’ve checked the po file to make sure there wasn’t any missing lines, but that doesn’t seem to be the case (have a look on the side menu half is translated and half isn’t).
I don’t think the problem I am facing is a bug, but just a matter of getting my head around all the different content management tools we have. For this reason, I haven’t published the changes yet, meaning you will see the site as it still is.

On Page » Page settings, I chose the pt-br tab and added their respective translations for the menu. However, when I did that, what I got back from the links were blank pages.
Following the wiki manual for CMS, the next step would be to create a translation for the respective pages (Language » Add Language, Copy plugins, and so on). The dilema is that the page already exists and even when I try to copy the plugins from the page in English to the Pt-Br page, it doesn’t really work.
Hence, I would be very grateful if you guys could help me to figure out what I am doing wrong =).
On another note: Maren, the sponsors page is fixed for pt-br.
Have you all a lovely day,
Ps.: I had added a few screenshots here, but the message got too big, so just removed them =).
Hi Website Translators,
our Sponsors page has received a little update:
- Gitlab added
- entry for launchpad modified
- Silver Sponsor moved into separate section
- new Bronze Sponsor added
As this page has a lot of extra styling, be sure to check / modify the
html source (esp. for the float-clearing paragraphs). Logo images are
left-aligned. Links open in new windows, wherever possible.
one more, really tiny update for the Hackfest has been added:
The page at https://inkscape.org/en/support-us/hackfests/
received a short info line at the top, about the dates of the current
That's all for today ;-) (probably for the next couple of days, too)
