# This is the copyright holder that gets inserted into the header of the
# $(DOMAIN).pot file. Set this to the copyright holder of the surrounding
# package. (Note that the msgstr strings, extracted from the package's
# sources, belong to the copyright holder of the package.) Translators are
# expected to transfer the copyright for their translations to this person
# or entity, or to disclaim their copyright. The empty string stands for
# the public domain; in this case the translators are expected to disclaim
# their copyright.
# This tells whether or not to prepend "GNU " prefix to the package
# name that gets inserted into the header of the $(DOMAIN).pot file.
# Possible values are "yes", "no", or empty. If it is empty, try to
# detect it automatically by scanning the files in $(top_srcdir) for
# "GNU packagename" string.
# This is the email address or URL to which the translators shall report
# bugs in the untranslated strings:
# - Strings which are not entire sentences, see the maintainer guidelines
# in the GNU gettext documentation, section 'Preparing Strings'.
# - Strings which use unclear terms or require additional context to be
# - Strings which make invalid assumptions about notation of date, time or
# - Pluralisation problems.
# - Incorrect English spelling.
# - Incorrect formatting.
# It can be your email address, or a mailing list address where translators
# can write to without being subscribed, or the URL of a web page through
# which the translators can contact you.
# This is the list of locale categories, beyond LC_MESSAGES, for which the
# message catalogs shall be used. It is usually empty.
# This tells whether the $(DOMAIN).pot file contains messages with an 'msgctxt'
# context. Possible values are "yes" and "no". Set this to yes if the
# package uses functions taking also a message context, like pgettext(), or
# if in $(XGETTEXT_OPTIONS) you define keywords with a context argument.
USE_MSGCTXT = no
# These options get passed to msgmerge.
# Useful options are in particular:
# --previous to keep previous msgids of translated messages,
# --quiet to reduce the verbosity.
MSGMERGE_OPTIONS = --no-location
# These options get passed to msginit.
# If you want to disable line wrapping when writing PO files, add
# --no-wrap to MSGMERGE_OPTIONS, XGETTEXT_OPTIONS, and
# This tells whether or not to regenerate a PO file when $(DOMAIN).pot
# has changed. Possible values are "yes" and "no". Set this to no if
# the POT file is checked in the repository and the version control
# program ignores timestamps.
PO_DEPENDS_ON_POT = yes
# This tells whether or not to forcibly update $(DOMAIN).pot and
# regenerate PO files on "make dist". Possible values are "yes" and
# "no". Set this to no if the POT file and PO files are maintained
