What is this?

DDTP-lp-html is a simple tool to generate static HTML pages, which contain links to package description's translations in Launchpad.

Why?

Ubuntu includes lots of software packages, which have packacge descriptions, visible in package management tools, such as Synaptic, update-manager, gnome-app-install, etc. Those descriptions are translatable, to make them usable for people not speaking English very well. The problem is the amount of these messages. Translation teams with limited human resources have to somehow decide, which strings to translate. One possible decision is to translate the packages which are visible in the gnome-app-install application, also known as Applications -> Add/Remove. This is more likely to be used by new/less technical users, who perhaps don't speak English, so they would find the localized descriptions appearing more helpful as other places. Other argument is, that the number of packages appearing here is relatively small ;), so this subset of strings can be translated by smaller teams in reasonable time.

Features

DDTP-lp-html can be used to generate static HTML pages, containing links to the descriptions of given packages in the enormous sized DDTP templates. Also it can indicate if the given string is already translated. The resulting html files are sorted in alphabetic order, except the file for universe, which is by the popcon values of the packages, so you can begin translating the more popular applications of universe. The input of the program is a package list generated from the .desktop files of app-install-data and the DDTP po templates of the given language.
