Well, XMMS is fully translated now, and the po file sent to Håvard. I missed the 1.2.2 release though... =(

Also, the XMMS rpm:s in Helix now also contains translations. The translations were left out before, and I filed a bug on that. Jacob fixed it. Thanks!

Well I've volunteered to maintain the Swedish translation of XMMS. There was a previous Swedish translation, done by Olle Hällnäs, but it was incomplete and he was happy to hand it over. ;-)

Don't know when I will be finished with it, though. Maybe tomorrow, maybe in a week.

I've already annoyed Håvard Kvålen with stupid questions...

Was in Germany last weekend. Lots of fun.

Started working on Monday, will be working during the summer until the semester starts again. I'm working in the IT department of a hospital in Malmö, Sweden.

I've offered to maintain the hello package, since the original Swedish translation maintainer didn't have the time to maintain it. I've updated it and sent it in today.

I'm also doing Red Hat translations like a raving maniac. Summer should be vacation time, but I have more work to do than ever... ;-)

Was home this weekend. My youngest nephew was baptized on Saturday. Lots of relatives visiting. Fun.

I have now added id-utils to my list of translation projects. I finished the translation this evening and I'm just waiting for comments and suggestions before I send it in.

The computer graphics project didn't work, btw. We decided to wait with it until after the summer. Maybe we'll be ending up rewriting everything in C instead of Java... ;-)

The Pan translation was finished this weekend and I sent it to ahyden. I hope he likes it and checks it in into the GNOME cvs. :)

I haven't done much else translationwise. The exams are over for this time, but me and a friend still have the project in the Computer Graphics course unfinished. The project is about implementing a small set of OpenGL ("MiniGL") in Java and some "simple" demos for demonstrating it. It should be finished and presented Thursday June 8th. I don't know if we'll make it in time.

Almost finished with the Swedish translation of Pan.

Have begun work on the specs.sv.po file. That's the descriptions and summaries of all the RPMs in Red Hat, waiting to be translated into Swedish. There's a lot of them, and they are really lengthy.

$ msgfmt -v specs.sv.po
37 translated messages, 1675 untranslated messages.

Ouch. Guess I'll be finished some time next year.

Added myself to Advogato. That might be overkill, as I'm just a translator, not a developer. Oh, well.

Wondering if i dare to add Red Hat as a project on Advogato. I helped translate the Red Hat install, but I'm wondering if people would consider Red Hat a project worthy Advogato. But I think I'll try to add Red Hat anyway, as I think it qualifies as a software project.
I think I'll find out if a lot of people disagree... ;-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
