Browsing through mozilla/l10n shows a lot of probably unused stuff. - mozilla/l10n/lang only contains a danish translation from October 1999 - mozilla/l10n/nscp is netscape-specific stuff which should be removed - I have no clue what mozilla/l10n/us is about, but the code in there dated back to november 1999 mostly and is probably unused, too. - mozilla/l10n/langpacks/nscp is netscape-specific stuff again and should be removed. I'm not sure about the rest. If it is unused it should go, if it is still used, it should remain.

mozilla/l10n/nscp and mozilla/l10n/langpacks/nscp is stuff donated from nscp to Mozilla, so Mozilla l10n people can use their stuff as well. Additionally, this bug might relate to bug 179949
From bug 179949 comment 7: We had some language translation contribution from Netscape 7.0, you can check out it by: cvs co mozilla/l10n/nscp and the tagging is NSCP-L10N-1-0-1-RC1. We didn't check it into the trunk, we think other people may have different translation, if anybody want to contribute, they can check in their files like: mozilla/l10n/yourname Localizer can pick up any translation they like... In the trunk "mozilla/l10n/langpacks" directory, the files are too old, and only few languages there. We need to clean it up.
Bug 193740 removed the timebomb stuff, so we can cvs remove a bunch of timebomb.dtd and folders: http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/find?string=timebomb
Removing files from l10n/ has no connection with the timebomb stuff. Either we cvs remove some subdirectries completely or we don't even touch them. Even if some localizations might be old, they should still be complete (as in: complete for the version of Mozilla they were made for). I still want to get current German l10n work into the Mozilla tree, BTW, this means I still intend to fix bug 179949 :)
>Removing files from l10n/ has no connection with the timebomb stuff. It has a connection in so far, that timebomb stuff is no longer shipped with mozilla and timebomb.dtd-files aren't needed any longer. >Either we cvs remove some subdirectries completely or we don't even touch them. >Even if some localizations might be old, they should still be complete (as in: >complete for the version of Mozilla they were made for). If I understand the cvs remove command correctly, removing files from cvs does not delete the files completely, it only deletes them from the current working trunk, but they are still accessible on older branches. So when removing these files, one would still be able to build an older release of Mozilla with these files. Or am I making a mistake here?
Simon: You're making the mistake that you believe that mozilla/l10n/ directory contains trunk versions of anything. Actually, no files in there are up to the trunk, and some (esp. of the nscp files) are only available as real branch files. Most of the files don't have a branch tag set but are actually only at a trunk stage (and they don't get pulled by a normal build process anyway).
I've got 718 files in 139 directories worth 800 KB in my tree, checked out with make (for building Firebird), consisting of mozilla/l10n/langpacks/en-DE and en-GB. The files are mostly from 2000, some from 2001. While I don't care about other directories that much, it would be nice if these two could be removed or moved to a branch, so that they don't get pulled by default.
IMO, mozilla/l10n compeltely shouldn't be pulled by default, but you're right, the files in that directories should belong to their respective branches, if any.
http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?treeid=default&module=all&branch=HEAD&branchtype=match&dir=mozilla%2Fl10n&file=&filetype=match&who=&whotype=match&sortby=Date&hours=2&date=all&mindate=&maxdate=&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot shows no serious maintenance of these files. In my quest to remove stuff from the tree that doesn't currently build/work, r=bsmedberg to remove everything in mozilla/l10n
Benjamin, checkout now displays the following errors: cvs server: warning: mozilla/l10n/makefile.win is not (any longer) pertinent cvs server: warning: mozilla/l10n/Makefile.in is not (any longer) pertinent cvs server: warning: mozilla/l10n/langpacks/makefile.win is not (any longer) pertinent cvs server: warning: mozilla/l10n/langpacks/Makefile.in is not (any longer) pertinent
This is FIXED since bsmedberg's checkins
