2011-03-08i18n: do not poison translations unless GIT_GETTEXT_POISON envvar is setJonathan Nieder
Tweak the GETTEXT_POISON facility so it is activated at run time instead of compile time. If the GIT_GETTEXT_POISON environment variable is set, _(msg) will result in gibberish as before; but if the GIT_GETTEXT_POISON variable is not set, it will return the message for human-readable output. So the behavior of mistranslated and untranslated git can be compared without rebuilding git in between. For simplicity we always set the GIT_GETTEXT_POISON variable in tests. This does not affect builds without the GETTEXT_POISON compile-time option set, so non-i18n git will not be slowed down. Signed-off-by: Jonathan Nieder <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
