Simplifying Open Source Localization

Great article on Automating Government with e-Governance in India talks about the need to simplify localization of Linux software:

Unembarrassment...

Aha! It was the OpenOffice build failing due to localize errors, I just need to find out what they are now (have install sets but not all files are built properly). If I keep on disagreeing with myself like this, I can provide hours of entertainment...

Embarrassment...

It was actually an error in my modification to Pavel's build scripts that stopped OpenOffice.org from building (it had built correctly but not produced the install sets). All fixed now. I still think OOo could take some simplification though...

Free rubbish article at Washington Times

This is unbelievable...

OOo localize still hopeless...

Well it would be nice if it would build. But localize tends to introduce horrible bugs.

improving pavel's open office build system

Started working on OpenOffice.org stuff again today, wanting to get splash screens etc in. So I set up Pavel's nice build system . It uses ccache so you can pull out a fresh source tree each time without worrying about recompiling stuff.
