A slightly revised version of the patchset which includes en and ja only
has been put at http://people.freebsd.org/~hrs/docwww_monthname_sort2.diff.gz.
The changes include:
- If $WEB_ONLY is defined, mirrors.xml and transtable.xml is not used.
A list of the mirror sites generated in index.html becomes a dummy one,
and calling transtable-lookup with a word returns the word itself.
Now www/ tree can be built without doc/ tree (some information becomes
- <month><name> in advisories.xml, news.xml, and press.xml uses
a number, not a name to make the localization easy. The number->name
translation is performed on the fly.
- The structure of transtable.xml has been changed; <group id="word-group">
should be used to grouping <word> elements.
- A sorting order of <entry> in mirrors.xml is determined
I think I will commit the patchset this weekend. For what kind of changes
are needed for the translation teams, please see the patchset previously
Even if the necessary changes are not applied in the localized
directories, it should not break the build. It will simply generates
a non-localized list in that case.
And, the patchset should not break other conventions. If you notice
a problem or feel the changes are too disruptive, please let me know.
