Release of version 4.6.1-pre2 of sharutils

From: Bruce Korb
Subject: Release of version 4.6.1-pre2 of sharutils
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2005 20:53:08 -0800 (PST)

GNU sharutils consists of two pairs of utilities: shar and unshar, and
uuencode and uudecode.  "shar" makes so-called shell archives out of
many files, preparing them for transmission by electronic mail
services (converting binary data to ascii representations, breaking
the text into multiple shar scripts, etc.).  "unshar" is the safe way
to extract and reassemble the original files.  It will automatically
strip off the mail headers and other introductory text.

"uuencode" and "uudecode" are programs that convert binary files into
ascii text so that the original data can pass through the email system
without having intermediate hosts "fixing" the files en route.

Translation information:

sharutils.pot has changed *again* with this release.  I hope I am done
modifying message strings now.  Several more multi-part message strings
were re-formed to use a single printf formatting string.

*ALSO* the "es.po" translation was substantially updated by me.
It would be helpful if a native speaker of Spanish were to review it.
Especially someone with a Spanish keyboard.  :)

This is an alpha release of sharutils.

Version 4.6.1-pre2 - November 2005, by Bruce Korb

* Adapt to "md5sum" version changes
* clean up message strings.  Let translators order the components properly.
* Put nearly all the longer shell fragments into the "scripts.def" file.

                 it helps to spot the message.)
