Description Peter Eisentraut 2006-02-11 23:20:11 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.1KDE 3.4.3)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable PackagesDebian testing/unstable Packages

xml2pot creates files with a content type like this:

Content-Type: application/x-xml2pot; charset=UTF-8

Normal POT files have headers like this:

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8

This confuses PO editing tools such as the the emacs gettext mode.  If xml2pot creates real POT files, which I assume it does, it should use the right content type.  If the result is not a real POT file, there is no point in calling it xml2pot.

Thank you for confirming that this mime type is a bad idea. I had planned to find an idea how to change this in KDE4.

Unfortunately for KDE3, this is more like a "feature". A few KDE tools, including KBabel, knows about this and reacts in consequence (e.g. for KBabel: filling the translators' placeholders).

Have a nice day!
