I'm trying to translate the Moodle install script v2.2dev in Bulgarian. Translated strings go to the language pack available for download, but they don't appear in the CVS repository after the weekly cvs snapshot for more then 2 weeks.
Not complete list of some strings from install/lang/bg/install.php file:
These strings are translated in AMOS database, they are translated in bg.zip language pack available from http://download.moodle.org/langpack/2.1/ (install.php file) but not in the CVS repository hire: http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/install/lang/bg/
OK, I think everything works as expected. Let me describe what I found.
Firstly note that not all strings from install.php are exported to /install/lang. Only those explicitly declared in the file /install/stringnames.txt are. For example from those you listed, only the following two strings are exported: databasehost and databasename.
The string 'databasehost' was initially translated on 2.2dev branch and it is available on HEAD branch in CVS: http://cvs.moodle.org/moodle/install/lang/bg/install.php?r1=1.5&r2=1.6&pathrev=HEAD Then it was merged into 2.1 on 2011-08-11 05:53 UTC by yourself in AMOS. But this update of 2.1 branch got into AMOSbot's git repository just a couple of hours after it was already merged into the recent weekly release. So it is now waiting at https://github.com/amosbot/moodle/compare/MOODLE_21_STABLE...install_21_STABLE and will be included in next weekly release of Moodle.
Same applies for 'databasename' string and I believe for the rest, too.
Hope this helps
Thanks a lot.
I have translated strings from two versions of Moodle 2.2dev and 2.1, but not from older versions.
