|Re: [incubation] I18n for feature.xml/plugin.xml|
You are being very diligent in following all the old strong guidance.
Sadly much of it is now stale and/or widely ignored.
I'm not sure that any project is really internationalized these days;
certainly it is a long time since I got an email from the IBM message
translators asking what a message meant.
In the particular case of i18n, there appear to be some directory naming
practices that went obsolete with PDE-build. Every so often some new
attempt at compatibility by Tycho manages to resurrect old functionality
and go confusingly wrong as a consequence of a stale refactoring. IMHO
the less you have to do with i18n the better.
