Launchpad to be used for translations again

Reported by: usul Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: blocker Milestone: version 0.5.1
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: languages, i18n


Currently we maintain the translations only on our own. I asked Translatewiki if we might join, but the setup process will take months ​

To get translations for at least a min. number of languages, we need a comfortable way to do them/let other help us and to check the translation process.

So please let us use launchpad to maintain the .po translations again ​

We used to use launchpad, and have automated import/export. Unfortunately, at some point they changed the way authentication works on their platform and it broke the script. I'm almost done fixing it, hopefully.

So we did a translation sprint last year:

IMHO we can set this ticket to closed, as we are now able to manage contributions via launchpad?

Actually launchpad is broken again, because ubuntu one (which was used as SSO) has been shut down, i can't get back to my account anymore. I've contacted the support. I think, despite the issues we had with it in the past, that it's still a really good platform to handle translations. We should continue to use only one tool for that. Let's keep the ticket open until this issue is fixed and we can streamline the translation merge again.

Well, while the file hosting part of Ubuntu One was shut down, it still operates as a SSO service. So your login should still work... or is there another problem?

I had to update the script, but it has been back in business for some time now. .pot templates are now automatically pushed from our CI server ( see for more details ). Pulling .po files from launchpad is more difficult to automate as you need to ask for the generation of the templates from launchpad's database, then wait for an email with the link. Semi-automation for this process works tho, and the trunk should be in sync with launchpad currently. I think that we can safely close this ticket.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
