Description Tim Waugh 2008-06-20 15:30:58 UTC
Description of problem:
The 'intltool-update -m' left-out-files check incorrectly reports files as
missing from the POTFILES list when they reside in a subdirectory whose name it
two letters.  This is because '..' is used in a regular expression intending to
match two dots, but it instead matches any two characters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

git clone git://
cd system-config-printer
git checkout 1e955b84eca082d12959ac8f6653e59718920fae
make check

Actual results:
ui/*.glade files are reported missing from POTFILES.

Expected results:
No reported missing translatable files.

Additional info:
Patch attached.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:

I can't seem to repeat this on Fedora 9.
