NAME

       debconf-updatepo - update PO files about debconf templates

SYNOPSIS

       debconf-updatepo [-v] [-h] [--podir=DIR] [--skip-pot] [--skip-merge]
       [--msgid-bugs-address=EMAIL]

DESCRIPTION

       This program reads po/POTFILES.in to determine which master files need
       to be processed, then extracts new gettext strings into
       po/templates.pot and updates all po/*.po files.  This script can be
       called either in the top-level directory, or in the debian or debian/po
       subdirectories.  It is run by developer and/or translator to update PO
       files when the English text is modified in templates files.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
           Display a usage summary and exit.

       -v, --verbose
           Process in verbose mode.

       --podir=DIR
           Set directory for PO files.  By default PO files are searched in
           debian/po, po and ../po directories in that order.

       --skip-pot
           Do not generate a new po/templates.pot file.

       --skip-merge
           Do not merge existing PO files with po/templates.pot.

       --msgid-bugs-address=EMAIL
           Set the email address that will be specified in the POT’s Report-
           Msgid-Bugs-To field.

           By default, this field is set to <package>@package.debian.org.

           It is intended for the maintainers of Debian based distributions,
           and should be used in the following cases:

           o   The package is not present in Debian (and thus the
               <package>@packages.debian.org address does not exist).

           o   The maintainer made significant changes in the debconf
               templates (or added templates to a Debian package without
               templates), and does not want to bother the Debian maintainer
               with bug reports that won’t be relevant for the Debian
               maintainer.

           The default address is preferred to avoid corrections in the Debian
           based distribution without a notification to the Debian maintainer.
