Update Macedonian (mk) plural form

Asked by David Planella on 2009-11-06

I've just noticed that in Launchpad Macedonian has got only 2 plural forms, whereas in some GNOME and KDE applications it's got 3. This would need to be checked and the plural forms updated accordingly.

* Launchpad has:
nplurals=2;
(n % 10 == 1 && n % 100 != 11) ? 0 : 1

* Nautilus, Evolution (GNOME) have:
"Plural-Forms: nplurals=3; plural= n==1 || n%10==1 ? 0 : 1\n"
(Confusingly enough, http://l10n.gnome.org/teams/mk says nplurals=2; plural= n==1 || n%10==1 ? 0 : 1)

* Dolphin (KDE) has:
"Plural-Forms: Plural-Forms: nplurals=3; plural=n%10==1 ? 0 : n%10==2 ? 1 : "
"2;\n"

The Macedonian translators should be able to confirm which is the correct form.

Ah "nice". These two (Nautilus and KDE) seem to be incompatible with each other.

The Nautilus/Evolution ones are actually broken: they only result in one of two plural forms, and the third one is never used. I guess mk plural forms in GNOME should all be fixed to match the KDE one. Mozilla supports the KDE variant:

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Localization_and_Plurals#Plural_rule_.2314_(3_forms)

so I think we can go with that. However, since they are incompatible, it would be essential to make sure this is known in upstream GNOME and fixed there as well!
