pkgstriptranslations - extract translation files and remove gettext *.mo files from package build directories
pkgstriptranslations extracts all gettext related files from the source and package build directories and puts them into <pkg-build-dir>/../package_version_arch_suffix.tar.gz. suffix is configurable in /etc/pkgbinarymangler/striptranslations.conf and defaults to translations. Tarball layout: source/ contains all pot and po files from source package, preserving the directory structure. debname1/, debname2/, ... There will be one directory per generated binary deb package, each contains all .mo files from this deb, preserving directory structure. This script also removes all gettext *.mo files below <pkg-build-dir>/usr/share/locale from all built binary packages. It will also remove subdirectories which became empty after removal of the gettext files. However, if a file /CurrentlyBuilding is present (as on the Ubuntu autobuilders), then the *.mo files are only deleted if the Component: value in this file matches one of the components configured in /etc/pkgbinarymangler/striptranslations.conf. This allows to selectively strip files only for source packages which are in e. g. main and restricted, but not in e. g. universe. By default, pkgstriptranslations is inactive. To enable it, the enable option in the configuration file must be set to true.
NO_PKG_MANGLE If this variable is set to a nonempty value, then pkgstriptranslations is disabled. This is most useful if source packages build nested binary packages as part of their build.
