The Ubuntu-l10n-hu team proudly presents it's newest development, called
What is Nightmonkey?
Nightmonkey is a simple tool to generate html files, which contain links
to translatable package descriptions of the packages, which are
installable via gnome-app-install.
This way, a translation team can see and translate in the vast DDTP
templates _exactly_ those package's descriptions, which are visible by
the users of gnome-app-install.
We consider these descriptions more important than others, as g-a-i's
target audience are the less experienced users, who "only want to
install some programs" and don't care about the details, for such users
(at least in Hungary), translated descriptions are more valuable.
Focusing translation efforts on such strings is a good idea, isn't it :)?
