Hi Konfrare - From the answer given, Roman assumed you have cloned the git-repository for gimp-help-2 -- although given the nature of your questions, I believe you are updating the translation using the danmed lies gnome l10n infraestructure, which allows for downoading/translating/uploading the

[Gimp-docs] Notes while translating the manual

2014-01-04 Thread Joao S. O. Bueno
Hi there - As you know, I am coordinating the translation for PT_BR (we have most files already, but the pt_BR team wants they to have a final review before comiting to git) For the files I am translating personally (as for the ones I will review), I am taking notes of outdated areas,

Hi Roman - when you talk about a 3.0 manual version in 3.0 - I am with the impression that the purposed changes would take place before GIMP 3.0 itself (as the next version shall be 2.10) So - it looks like the purposed version numbering would dissociate the manual version from GIMP's version -
