NAME

Locale::Po4a::NewsDebian - convert NEWS.Debian documents from/to PO files

DESCRIPTION

The po4a (PO for anything) project goal is to ease translations (and more interestingly, the maintenance of translations) using gettext tools on areas where they were not expected like documentation.

Locale::Po4a::NewsDebian is a module to help the translation of the NEWS.Debian files into other [human] languages. Those files are where maintainer are supposed to write the important news about their package.

OPTIONS ACCEPTED BY THIS MODULE

NONE.

STATUS OF THIS MODULE

Not tested.

A finer split of the entries may be preferable (search for /^ */, for example), but this version is more robust and NEWS.Debian entries are not supposed to change that often.
