AboutSystem: clicking on localized license name doesn't open license file
|Reported by:||taos||Owned by:||nielx|
Using hrev41319 (gcc2hybrid).
Normally, when clicking on a license name in AboutSystem the corresponding license file is opened - e.g. clicking on "BSD (3-clause)" opens /boot/system/data/licenses/BSD (3-clause) in StyledEdit.
When working with a localized system, a number of license names are translated (BSD (x-clause), MIT (no promotion), etc). Now, AboutSystem still looks for the corresponding (translated) license files but - of course - can't find a match in the license directories because the file names are not localized. A french system would search for "BSD (3-clauses)", a german system for "3-Klausel-BSD" instead of "BSD (3-clause)".
Not localizing the license strings might be an easy workaround. However, it would be nicer if AboutSystem could - as fall-back in case there is no localized file - just open the corresponding not-localized license file.
