Hello Dwayne,

We need your help with these false positives:
1) If a test makes no sense in your language, e.g. startcaps in
languages with no capitals, then please report that to the Pootle
developers as we can switch these off for your language.
2) Please report false positives that affect your language and that you
think could/should be fixed in the code.

For example:
'XX' cannot be replaced. - „XX” nem cserélhető le.

This Hungarian translation is perfectly valid but it fails
'singlequoting', 'doublequoting', and 'startpunc' check. There are
hundreds of string like this. There might be real errors among them, but...
We already do this kind of adaptation for French guillemets so we could probably easily adapt it for Hungarian. So yes that is the type of false positive I'm interested in hearing about and fixing.

If you can give more examples of those strings so that I can build tests that would be helpful,
Anyway, I'll report if a check be dropped for my language.

Please also try to mark your false positives.  This allows you to reduce
your error count to zero and will then show real errors clearly.  You
can do that by clicking on the cross next to the check when you are in
review mode.
Thanks for the hint, I did not know this. :) Unfortunately it will take
a while to click through several thousand strings.
Yes, maybe focus on ones that are less error prone then the quotes.
We haven't had much testing of what happens to false positives when the
files are upgraded, you would help us test and find bugs here.

OK, maybe I should test it on a smaller test module...

Fixing all failing Pootle checks would definitely increase the quality
of translation. However, some teams will not find time to fix them all.
The bugs I reported in my previous mail are severe bugs which can cause
loss of functionality so I wish that everybody corrects at least those.
Yes, those few should be a priority and should be at zero.
