What does "translator ready", "mail ready", and "addnews ready" mean?

Or myabe I should say, How do I make my modules "translator ready", "mail ready", and "addnews ready"

Thanks Sig =)

I think this was *why* Mr Zone was asking, but the actual answer is more complicated.

There are piles of threads in here about translation readiness and it is very difficult to achieve from scratch. If your module is based on a core module (which it is, since you're asking about those lines) make sure you credit the author, and then for the most part, just use the existing outputs and change the text. Most of the outputs in core modules will handle translation code.

Wench, if I started from scratch but investigated for solutions to problems I was having in various modules, would I be required to credit all these modules, or only those that I took a sizable portion of code from?

This has been discussed to death in numerous threads.

Getting code ideas/snippets from other modules does not require giving credit.

When using larger blocks of code from another author, there should at least be a comment line in your file immediately preceeding the block which indicates the source file/author.  Amongst other things, this makes code fixes easier to transfer.

Crediting every individual who even fleetingly influenced your creation of a module would be exceedingly redundant and irritating, but that doesn't preclude a brief comment in the beginning of your file if you so desire.

Above all else - common sense and courtesay prevails

Sorry for not making myself clear, but I meant just as a comment in the file, not on the author line in the info array.  I had seen statements that let me to believe both ways about this and I wanted to make sure that I was not violating any rules by not crediting all of the modules I looked at without taking snippets.
