Re[2]: [TSVN] doc translations

I've just checked-out everything and I've got ready to back-port my
partial Spanish XML files into poEdit. But... How can I make the docs?
I want to compile doc files so I can see the changes. But GenDoc.bat
does seem to get doc files from xml ones not .po.

Is there any command I can run to rebuild XML files from .po? Or is
there an updated .bat file?

Thank you
