Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-07-11 17:02:50 UTC

php syntax allows both the usage of
'foo' => '...'
'bar' => "..."

However only o few messages are using 'bar' => "...".

These are:

'alreadyloggedin' => "...",
'anoneditwarning' => "...",
'anontalkpagetext' => "...",
'blockededitsource' => "...",
'blockedoriginalsource' => "...",
'clearyourcache' => "...",
'editinginterface' => "...",
'loginsuccess' => "...",
'missingsummary' => "...",
'userinvalidcssjstitle' => "...",
'welcomecreation' => "...",

At some point in time tools for computer aided translations will / might be
used. The automatic validation of translations could be simplified if only one
of syntax versions would be used.

I suggest to use the only the
'foo' => '...'

I used to do the conversion but it is too easy to make
some mistakes.

Brion asked not to do it.

I've already responded to the mailing list post with objections to this. I don't
think a bug report is the appropriate way to go about making this sort of
change, and it will no doubt encourage forked discussion, half of which will be
in the wrong place.
Comment 3 Jimmy Collins 2006-07-11 17:14:07 UTC
I think an intelligent tool for computer aided translations should handle both
(' and ").
