Ah, I think I got it now.
There are several processes:
d) Building Thuban - development
input: SVN checkout
s) Doing binary snapshots.
input: SVN and build instructions
r) releasing Thuban / sourcetarball
Result: A source tarball (contains .mo files)
p) packaging Thuban
input for official versions: Tarball from r)
result: build instructions (from manual to fully automated,
aka an RPM spec file or Debian rules) for a target platform
b) creating a Thuban binary package for a target platform
input: specific build instructions
result specific binary package
Of course, d) is a bit special. For 1.2.0 we are now executing the
other processes. Creating the .mo files is part of r) and currently done
manually as explained in Doc/technotes/release_process.txt.
This also means you should do p) for windows based r) as well.
Did you package from the tarball or zipfile?
So when doing a binary snapshot,
you have to build the .mo files manually yourself.
