phpBB and language packs file names use different version style

I noticed the file names for phpBB and the language packs use different style.

Code: Select all

phpBB-3.2.2.zip
british_english_3_2_2.zip
Would it not be better to use the same style?

Like:

Code: Select all

phpBB-3.2.2.zip
british_english-3.2.2.zip

Re: Converting to PO format

Like if the software was using POT/PO format for translations it might say: New translation: To start a new translation for a language that does not exists download the POT file and ... Updatering existing translation: To update a transla...

Re: Instructions on how to update a translation

Why not just write the instructions on a page and all people can follow those instructions instead of each translator have to explain to another translator. I dont think there are translators for all translations. Some translations have not been updated for years. On some pages it says "Warning...

Re: Similar files in email/ and email/short/

What would happen if:

Code: Select all

return $this->notify_using_messenger(NOTIFY_IM, 'short/');
Is changed to:

Code: Select all

return $this->notify_using_messenger(NOTIFY_IM);

Re: Instructions on how to update a translation

How would new translations know what to do unless there are instructions?
Should this not be mentioned on https://www.phpbb.com/languages/apply.php ?

Re: Converting to PO format
