Summary0017068: Convert non-native swatches to Scribus Native XML
DescriptionI just noticed there are a few non-native swatches included in Scribus:

While not a huge problem, there's something to be said to convert them, and having all included swatches be in Scribus' native format.
TagsNo tags attached.

BTW, I ran into this while grepping for data in /usr/share/scribus/swatches, where sbz won't return any results because it's compressed, and while zgrep might solve that, the internal XML schema isn't particularly conducive to grepping either.

I also just noticed the RAL Classic descriptive names are in German, which sortof makes due sense to it's German origins.

However for most users the English translated versions would be more useful.

Attached: RAL Classic with English descriptive names also taken from Wikipedia.

Sidenote: Notice I dropped the Wikipedia prefix, as it messes with the sort order, if you want to keep the Wikipedia part, please consider suffixing it instead.

Sidenote: Why are they stored in ~/.local/share/scribus/palettes and /usr/share/scribus/swatches/, at some point in the future can they both be made either palettes or swatches??

>> Why are they stored in ~/.local/share/scribus/palettes and /usr/share/scribus/swatches/

The palettes directory is a leftover of an old installation, it has been a while we do not use that "palettes" directory anymore.

It doesn't seem that way, 1.5.9svn still creates ~/.local/share/scribus/palettes, maybe this was changed in master and not backported to 1.5.x?

As far as I can see, this directory is only created if there are leftover from old installation data:

QDir oldPaletteData2 = ScPaths::preferencesDir() + "/palettes";
const QFileInfoList filPaletteData2(oldPaletteData2.entryInfoList());
for (const QFileInfo &fiPal : filPaletteData2)
    moveFile(fiPal.absoluteFilePath(), ScPaths::userPaletteFilesDir(true) + fiPal.fileName());

The creation of that "palettes" directory is performed by the ScPaths::userPaletteFilesDir(true) call.

If you did "Save Color Set", that case is expected.

WRT, RAL Classic, I just noticed official reference books use the German color names on the color cards themselves, and offering translations on an index card, so that's I guess a reason for keeping the german names as-is.

However, I still think you should considering converting any swatches from non-native formats to Scribus native.
