> > --> New fonts & interface translation
> > Discussed was where the translation files should reside. This also
> > related to other external blender files (.B.blend and such). Since
> > translation files are system-wide (not user related) LarstiQ proposed a
> > /usr/share/local/ dir. Others preferred a $HOME/.blender/ directory.
> > Typically this issue is a bit platform dependent. Since the meeting
> > couldn't agree on it, decision has been moved to the bf-blender admins
> > (LarstiQ, Phase, SirDude).
> > At OSX there is a problem with a multibyte to wide character
> > translation. Sgefant mentioned he has no idea to do it. The discussion
> > on this topic will be held at this maillist, so anyone who knows,
> > please tell.
> many people in a corporate environment want to use blender, and
> don't have root to machine, do not make blender components outside
> of user disk space. it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to get corporate IT
> to install stuff for you. use $HOME/.blender please.
better yet use the old BLENDERHOME env variable like the 1.x days.
