Leave the PO as is. They will be resynched in due time.

Objet : [vlc-devel] Adding translation for new feature
Date : mar., juin 17, 2014 13:19

I'm working on adding a minor new feature to VLC (being able to see the disc number in the playlist view for multi-disc albums). This of course requires a couple of new strings, and since I speak a little bit of French, I thought I'd try and include the localisations with my patch. I'd like a bit of guidance on how to do this though.

I tried running "make update-po". This detected the new strings and added them to the fr.po file, where I made the (I hope) correct translations and saved them. However the make command also changed every .po file to include the new string, and change the line numbers of strings in files I had edited.

What is the correct way to include these changes in my patch? Do you want me to include all of the automatically modified po files in the patch, just the fr.po file for which I actually provided a translation, or is it a case of just leaving the po/ directory entirely and letting the translation team handle it?
