P4DTI issue job000030

TitleUsers can't get help based on messages
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionThe P4DTI produces a lot of messages. It would be good to allow users to follow some sort of link from these to more information and experience.
AnalysisAll error and log messages in the replicator need identifiers so that we can refer to them in troubleshooting sections.

9853 closed 2001-03-12 21:02:36 Gareth Rees Added message factory classes to message.py (objects belonging to these classes have a new() method that generates a new message object). Wrote a catalog_factory class that gets its message text from a message catalog, to support localization and message ids.
Added module catalog.py, containing a message catalog in English.
Updated the P4DTI to use the message catalog.
Much improved the formatting of error messages, by passing around a list of paragraphs, and then wrapping them to 80 columns before sending.
Updated the AG, section 11.2, to use the message ids.

Updating "resolver" to "administrator" in some error messages in the code.
