Calling django-admin makemessages Without any option gives::

  Error: Type ' help makemessages' for usage.

But calling django-admin help makemessages doesn't produce a very clear documentation. Suggestions:

  • the overview description should mention that one of options -l and -a is required.
  • remove the word "only" in description of -l option ("Creates or updates the message files for the given locale (e.g. pt_BR).")
  • change the description of -a option to "Updates the message files for all existing locales."
