[PATCH 0/1] i18n: add framework for localizing the manpages

Hi all,

This is a second attempt at providing localized manpages of git in a central way. The first attempt[1] was to include all the changes directly in the main repo. But as Junio made me realize, staying in the main repo would have many drawbacks such as forcing possible translators to follow the workflow of Git and preventing use of third party translation tools such as Weblate.

This solution is to make the manpage localization project standalone. I finally had time to hack po4a to enhance support for specificities of git manpages. This rather light patch is only an adaptation of the Makefile to be able to use the same building rules in the translation repo. The translation repo bases the workflow on a copy of the selected manpages asciidoc source files. You can find it at


Translations can be filled using Weblate at https://hosted.weblate.org/projects/git-manpages/
