I have been trying to do l10n on strings provided by the filesizeformat template filter.
These strings are file size units (eg. KB, MB, GB), and are marked for translation with the use of ugettext.
But, alas, they are not in Django's default .po file, and not found either with the makemessages command, therefore I cannot translate those strings to other languages.
I have found (or understood) nothing about this in the docs. LOCALE_PATHS does obviously not help (since the app has no locale folder). I file this because it could be a bug (by omission). Or one could provide a way to handle this.
