Nice that you start preparing for local languages in mkusb :-)
There might be a problem though. I am running
in mkusb in order to get a constant format of the output from df, fstab,
parted etc, that are used by mkusb. (And I do the same in the OBI). I
guess it will make things more complicated: having to switch locale on
I will look into the possibility to use the pot file.
The OBI itself does not use mkusb. The user runs mkusb to install the
OBI from a compressed image file. mkusb can also be used to install an
operating system from an iso file (or to wipe the first megabyte to get
rid of traces that might create problems when repartitioning a mass
