So far the internationalization project is off to a good start.
We've got people in the DE, ES, and FR locales (at a minimum)
working on translating the utility message files.
Since there are many bin, usr.bin, sbin, and usr.sbin utilities,
the more interested participants, the better.
I'm taking care of the guts of the i18n stuff. This includes
modifying the Makefiles, creating the nls/ tree with its message
files, and modifying the *.c files so that the messages can
work correctly. I've already demonstrated several of the utilities
so far to prove the initial concept. Automation tools and help from
a number in the international community have proven another 8 or 10.
To date 30-some utilitites are ready to go.
I'm aiming the completed task to be acceptable to the entire BSD
community, Free, Net, and OpenBSD...and beyond that, for anyone
else in the open-source effort.
Right now I'm looking for someone to translate 5 or 6 message files
from English into German.
Interested? drop a line.
