------------------------------------

             Summary: Add message argument names, as comments, to English message file produced
by MessageBuilder.
                 Key: DERBY-5878
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5878
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Build tools
    Affects Versions: 10.10.0.0
            Reporter: Rick Hillegas


The MessageBuilder program turns messages.xml into two output files:

1) The DITA source for the Reference Guide section on error messages.

2) The messages_en.properties file of engine messages.

All of the translators I have dealt with want to use (2) as the English input for their translations.
I believe this is because translators have written their own tools and those tools expect
to work on properties files.

Messages may have arguments. Those arguments appear as sub-elements of the messages in messages.xml.
The arguments turn up in (1) but are thrown away when MessageBuilder produces (2). We can
help translators do a better job by also writing the arguments as comments in (2).
