Re: Translated version of the Release Notes?

How about using po format to translate release note?

1. mark translating area in the release note. ( we call this release
note template)
2. extracting the areas from the template as msgids of svn_releasenote_1.3.pot
3. copy that pot to each locale's po (e.g. svn_releasenote_1.3.ko.po,
svn_releasenote_1.3.ja.po ...)
4. translate the po-es
5. re-build release note from the po-es

I simply made an extracting tool (text2pot.pl at step 2), a build tool
(po2text.pl at step 5)
and the sample release note template which contains
"<translate>...</translate>" tags embraced
version of current 1.3 release note.

The usage is like this:

$ tools/po/text2pot.pl www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.html.template >
www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.pot

$ cp www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.pot www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.ko_KR.po

$ vi www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.ko_KR.po

$ tools/po/po2text.pl www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.ko_KR.po
www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.html.template >
www/svn_1.3_releasenotes.html.ko

Any comments?
