Hi Martin,

thank you for the files, I'll check them.

Earlier (when translating GS42) styles were used really poorly, mostly
direct formatting was used and large pieces of text were directly
reverted from formatting to unformatted text.
This has improved significantly, now there are often no problems or only
a few in one document. They can be fixed easily.

For example, I've noticed that in the file WG6410...odt "Path" in the
following sentence was directly formatted and therefore it vanished
after cleaning:


    To set the file name or change the folder, click the Path icon (the
    three dots to the right of the location). On the Save As dialog,
    make your selections and click *Save*.

Hi, Miloš,

this is the first time I hear of these pre-operations on a file, prior
to cleaning it with this script. I haven't done it.

I will send you the non-cleaned chapters so you can do the cleaning as
it should be done.

Please, do document the required (pre)process, so that the l10n teams
can use the script in the most efficient way.

Lp, m.

    Hi Martin,

    prior to cleaning it is necessary to check correctness of
    formatting – replace directly formatted bold and italic to styles
    and vice versa. Have you done that? If not, the formatting will
    vanish in cleaning. In that case please place the uncleaned files
    somewhere so that I can download them.

    I will upload the new version of the script together with a brief
    description how to use it.
    Perhaps we can add a new directory "for_cleaning" where finished
    documents would be put. From there the document would go to Published

    Hi, Miloš,

    I guess the Feedback dir was emptied and Jean put my "cleaned"
    files to the Published dir.

    I found the old WG chapters (uncleaned) in my Trash folder, so I
    can upload them somewhere for a new "cleaning" process.

    Lp, m.

        Hi Martin,

        I have a newer version of the script, which should do a bit
        better job. I'll upload it to "English/Contributor
        Resources", I did not know about that directory.
        I was unable to find the directories you have mentioned, I've

        Hi, Jean et. al.,

        I cleaned the files with the script downloaded
        from "English/Contributor Resources" map (uploaded 2 years ago).

        I hope this is the latest script, as some styles have been
        recently renamed etc. Maybe Miloš can confirm. The files
        seem bigger, but that might be because of the different
        zipping algorithm (LO/python).

        I placed the "cleaned" files in the Draft folder, in the
        "Published-cleaned" subfolder to check.

        Lp, m.
