03:56 AM silopolis[m]: Hello guys
04:02 AM silopolis[m]: pere smoe ok, well, will do the best I can in the next two weeks. Let's see where it leads us...
06:16 AM silopolis[m]: Such a pain to delete good chuncks of french docs just to match source lang 😢
06:18 AM silopolis[m]: Creating copies in docs/archive/fr/ tree not to loose these and hopefully later update both source and translation...
09:04 AM pere: silopolis[m]: yeah.
09:06 AM silopolis[m]: Also quite frustrating to not fix source docs while at it 😔
09:33 AM Tom_L: take notes :)
09:57 AM silopolis[m]: Tom_L: doesn't avoid the do it twice burden
09:57 AM Tom_L: true
10:20 AM silopolis[m]: Those fixed width lines are such a PITA 🤯
10:22 AM Tom_L: i think you guys are doing an amazing job
10:28 AM silopolis[m]: Thanks mate, after hours on just pncconf{,_fr}.adoc and just reaching half of it... This helps not thrawing it all through the window 😅
10:50 AM smoe: silopolis[m] - I have just completed src/examples and am in src/gcode now. The script ties me to the alphabet if I am not erroneous, would be nice if you could start out from src/user and src/tooldatabase.
11:16 AM silopolis[m]: I'm in config
11:17 AM silopolis[m]: code and common done
12:07 PM linuxcnc-build: build #1399 of 4042.deb-buster-rtpreempt-rpi4 is complete: Failure [4failed shell_1] Build details are at http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/buildbot/builders/4042.deb-buster-rtpreempt-rpi4/builds/1399 blamelist: Damian Wrobel <dwrobel@ertelnet.rybnik.pl>, c-morley <c-morley@users.noreply.github.com>
12:09 PM pere: great to see activity. :)
12:28 PM silopolis[m]: Let's keep hope we're doing it the right way...
12:37 PM pere: silopolis[m]: the end result is in any case suggestions to the translators, so someone need to verify the result individually before the strings are used.
12:39 PM silopolis[m]: Anyway, we're aligning on a src doc that's in a poor state, sometime very poor.
12:41 PM silopolis[m]: Can't stop thinking english docs should have been deeply linted, properly structured and adoc tagged before all this migration chore.
12:43 PM silopolis[m]: Just hope this is because I don't anticipate how things will go when we'll deep dive into src docs
12:43 PM silopolis[m]: And deeply hope this won't have to be done again......
12:54 PM pere: :)
01:01 PM smoe: I linted the English while working on the Spanish. But only did minimal changes - I even had a second pass through the files to further reduce the diff.
01:02 PM smoe: But yes, once we have the basic assignment from en to fr, some folks should bang their heads together on what bit of documentation should be changed with what priority.
01:12 PM silopolis[m]: Let's take an example... Say I will rework the pncconf page, split it in several pages, modify content and add all sorts of adoc tags... What will happen to the translations? Will preserved strings "follow"?
04:22 PM pere: silopolis[m]: PO files are per paragraph/heading, so moved text will keep their translations.
