These files, which are in the repo, keep getting modified, should they just be
Comment 1 Stepan Kasal 2006-08-20 15:35:22 UTC
Yes, you are right, *.pot files are not usually kept in CVS.

`make dist' calls xgettext to recreate them, even though the prerequisites have
not changed.  The date stamps inside the files change, causing a bloat of CVS.

`make all', OTOH, does not generate them; we do not use translations in frysk yet.

I considered adding gettext to the build requirements listed on the web. But
when I relized that it is needend only for `make dist' and `make distcheck, but
not for usual build, I decided against it.

I removed the two *.pot files from the CVS and added them to .cvsignore files.
