Documentation in Instances/resource-set.make I guess the stuff in make/Documentation should make it clear that it's just an overview, with detailed documentation there.
The use of a suibfolder is documented to be specified with xxx_RESOURCE_FILES_DIR (defaults to the current directory).

i'm having trouble with gnustep localization facilities.

first of all LOCALIZED_RESOURCE_FILES seems to be completely undocumented, no mention on the website or in make/Documentation.

the problem is that XXX_LOCALIZED_RESOURCE_FILES does only work with files residing in the same directory in as the GNUmakefile. it expects that the Language.lproj folders are next to the GNUMakefile. however my *.lproj folders are in a subfolder (Resources/).

if thats not obvious, you can specify:
and it will pick up e.g.
=> English.lproj/Localized.strings.

but if English.lproj and the other localization folders are not in the current path, but in the Resources/ subfolder how would you specify it?

XXX_LOCALIZED_RESOURCE_FILES = Resources/*.lproj/Localized.strings

that needs to be re-thought.

i'm currently working around the issue by not using LANGUAGES and LOCALIZED_RESOURCE_FILES, but rather specifying the lproj folders right in RESOURCE_FILES (so the full folders are copied), but that means i have to strip those folders afterwards of files are not appropriate for the gnustep version.
