DEBCONF-UPDATEPO(1)			    po-debconf			      DEBCONF-UPDATEPO(1)

NAME
       debconf-updatepo - update PO files about debconf templates

SYNOPSIS
       debconf-updatepo [-v] [-h] [--podir=DIR] [--skip-pot] [--skip-merge]
       [--msgid-bugs-address=EMAIL]

DESCRIPTION
       This program reads po/POTFILES.in to determine which master files need to be processed,
       then extracts new gettext strings into  po/templates.pot and updates all po/*.po files.
       This script can be called either in the top-level directory, or in the debian or debian/po
       subdirectories.	It is run by developer and/or translator to update PO files when the
       English text is modified in templates files.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	   Display a usage summary and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	   Process in verbose mode.

       --podir=DIR
	   Set directory for PO files.	By default PO files are searched in debian/po, po and
	   ../po directories in that order.

       --skip-pot
	   Do not generate a new po/templates.pot file.

       --skip-merge
	   Do not merge existing PO files with po/templates.pot.

       --msgid-bugs-address=EMAIL
	   Set the email address that will be specified in the POT's Report-Msgid-Bugs-To field.

	   By default, this field is set to <package>@package.debian.org.

	   It is intended for the maintainers of Debian based distributions, and should be used
	   in the following cases:

	   o   The package is not present in Debian (and thus the <package>@packages.debian.org
	       address does not exist).

	   o   The maintainer made significant changes in the debconf templates (or added
	       templates to a Debian package without templates), and does not want to bother the
	       Debian maintainer with bug reports that won't be relevant for the Debian
	       maintainer.

	   The default address is preferred to avoid corrections in the Debian based distribution
	   without a notification to the Debian maintainer.
