Hi All,

I'm jumping on behalf of the Pootle developers, as we seem to have multiple
threads and issues happening at once, and not all of them actually relate
to Pootle:

1. Everything going fuzzy/untranslated because of context change.  I agree
I wouldn't like this as a translator especially if these are just string
moves.  There are ways to script such things in the PO files to prevent
them being loaded as fuzzy. We're reaching out to the TDF l10n team to see
how we can help in future and to see if we can't clean this up for the
current change.

2. Some strings being removed from PO but still showing on Pootle, we're
investigating how this might have happened.  We've done extensive testing
in this area so we're surprised this is happening but will look at the
factors.  TDF server is large so it does take some time to update.

3. Uploads.  Please let us know when these happen, it often it a matter of
tuning the upload size and timeout but hearing after the fact doesn't help
us.  Let us know straight away please.  At the moment I expect uploads to
be difficult because of the initialisation of new PO files on the server.
Waiting till that is complete will likely be a better option.

Trust that helps give some clarity.  And I trust give some clarity as to
where Pootle is involved in this process.

Hi all,

BTW when I try to upload large file, I always get 504 gateway timeout
I used formula/source/core/resource.po file in Kazakh (kk) version.
In fact this PO does not require translation, I just copied the
messages to translations,
since those are all formulas.
But now I am unable to upload it to Pootle,

I hope you don't confuse us two. ;-)

And I am relatively new and maybe overenthusiastic here with my
contribution part.
I was lurking around OOo / LO since beginning.

    Hi Sophie,

    I know, sorry if you felt this was aimed at you - it wasn't -
though I am quite certain your assessment was correct, which is why I
"replied" to your post. It was aimed at whoever is letting this happen
again and again and again. This has been a complaint for as long as I can
remember on LO and I'm somewhere between gutted and furious that it's still
happening. Sure, maybe a locale like German or French has the translators
to throw at another 28k of work that was already done but most locales
aren't that fortunate. Take Uyghur, it was at 97% when OO and LO split.
There hasn't been much translation activity in this locale in both OO and
LO since and there haven't been *that* many genuinely new strings in LO
actually but that has left Uyghur on 61% and if I click through the strings
on Uyghur, it's one 100% match after the other.

    Yes, this is an angry post (not angry at Sophia) but before someone
slaps me down for being angry, maybe ask yourself at which point getting
angry is justified in a FOSS project when someone somewhere for some arcane
reason keeps wasting your lifetime as if it didn't matter. Do we really
want to burn out localizers like they were a dime a dozen?

        Hi Michael, *

        I am the wrong person to give you proper answers. Am just a
translator like you.

        I just wrote from my personal POV and vague knowledge from
what I'm getting.

        Christian Lohmaier is the right reference person for such

        So look at his mails about this issues. :-)
