Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4763) i18n properties files should be converted to ascii at build time.
Date Thu, 30 Jul 2009 02:22:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4763?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12736961#action_12736961

Kan Ogawa commented on GERONIMO-4763:
-------------------------------------

Lars,

When doing checkout and diff i18n properties from svn repository, it is a big merit to read
them directly without native2ascii tool.

Also, if a simple translating work, translator doesn't need to always prepare jdk itself (including
native2ascii) and it is possible to edit i18n properties easily and effectively on various
editor (e.g. notepad, vim, and emacs, etc.).

So I voted here.

> Current i18n properties files are stored in source code repo after they are converted
to ascii from native offline.  It's very hard to contribute new translations.
> We should keep native characters in source code while convert them to ascii at build
time. maven plugin native2ascii-maven-plugin could be used here:
