Hi Guix!

I recently submitted a request to savannah admins to open a new project
for our translations (as we discussed back in February, so weblate can
have access to it, but not to the main repos). Amin was kind enough to
answer and noticed something weird with our copyright headers. We have
a lot of different headers in there.

Some of them are "Copyright (C) 2020 Ludovic Courtès" when Ludo
probably never modified the file himself (eg: guix-cookbook.de.po),

Others are "Copyright (C) 2018-2020 the authors of Guix (msgids)" (eg:
guix-manual.de.po)

Some are "Copyright © 2013 Free Software Foundation, Inc." (eg:
packages/vi.po)

Actual authors of translations are listed in the file, because the TP
robot would not accept the file otherwise.  However, the first copyright
header is more related to msgids and should be the same everywhere
(except for years).

I don't think Ludo is the only copyright holder here, and since we
don't require contributors to assign copyright to the FSF, I don't
think the copyright goes to the FSF either.

I'd like to change all of these headers to something like this:

Copyright (C) 2018-2020 the authors of Guix (msgids)

Followed by the copyright of individual translators (or maybe the
previous line is enough?)

This is probably the header to use in the pot files too.

Thank you!

Yes, I think you are right with this change, but where to make it?

It seems this “authors of Guix” line in po/guix/*.po files originates
from the Translation Project
<http://svn.vrijschrift.org/tp-repo/TP/registry/registry.sgml>.

Changing the PO files directly would make them differ from the
authoritative version at the Translation Project.  Unless you plan to
switch to Weblate right away, that change is something that should be
discussed with the TP coordinator, I think.

Other PO files at the Translation Project seem to do different things
here, e.g. the German lynx translation
<https://translationproject.org/domain/lynx.html> only lists
translator copyrights, the French assigns copyright to the FSF, the
POT file does not mention any copyrights, also the format differs for
each of lynx’ translated PO files.

I think the copyright of individual translators should be put in PO
files like for all other source files.

Florian
