Hello, Julien,

the Slovenian team does not use Weblate for translation of the LO package.
We use it only for LOOL. And we use Pootle for website translation (or used
it for that, now there weren't string updates lately).

We investigated Weblate and did not find it that much better than Pootle to
migrate our work there.

So we do not check suggestions there, because our work is not going on
If you find errors in Slovenian translation, report them to the bugzilla,
that is what it is for. For reporting errors.

Christian: I understand now why my Slovenian fixes weren't taken into

Thank you for the tip about
! I could fix tags problem.

Martin: Indeed, I'm not a Slovenian but I only fix obvious tag problems,
not the language itself.

You talked about better "TM management", about "certain updates faster"
but did you compare with Pootle or did you also try Weblate and compare
with it?

It could be useful to indicate what could be improved in Weblate (perhaps
you already did it?).

Moreover, it means the suggestion of a Slovenian on Weblate won't be taken
into account (like my fixes about tags, those weren't suggestions) or do
you (or someone of Slovenian team) regularly take a look if there are any
new suggestions?

Hi, Julien,

thanks for noticing the error, I just updated Slovenian localization and
Andras already checked it into master. So the error should not be there

If you find any errors in strings that break build process, please let me
know (or for better visibility and reference, file a bug in bugzilla).
Please, do not change  Slovenian translations, as you are not a Slovenian
l10n team member.

Christian, Yes, I am not using Weblate (nor was I using Pootle) because of
better TM management by my own system. Also, turnaround for certain updates
is faster or more convenient for our team.

Lp, m.

Hi Julien,

Building with all langs and helpcontent, I noticed this:

Entity: line 1: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: root
line 0 and literal
išite parametre funkcije <literal>a</literal>,
Indeed sl/helpcontent2/source/text/scalc/guide.po contains:
However, I fixed this 11 days ago, see

Slovenian still is in my list of languages not using TDF's translation
tooling/was one of the languages that was updated independently via
Andras, so changes in weblate are not added automatically when I
update translations in the core repo.

Any idea what's wrong?

Well, nothing necessarily wrong - what counts for the build process is
what is committed to the translations repository.

For weblate I'm using an intermediate repository on github where
weblate automatically pushes to. But I don't want to have 14 weekly
commits to the translations repo, since that will also trigger commits
to core for moving the submodule tag and lots of small changes will
just have a higher noise ratio in the changes (change of last change
date to actual changes).

tldr: Slovenian translations have not been managed via pootle back in
the day and are pushed to the translations repo by Andras (last push
to 6-4 was in February, however last push to master is from last
November). There has been a langauge setup in pootle for it though, so
that's the reason why it also ended up in weblate, but still I/my
scripts still ignore it.

So question is for Slovenian translators (which I assume is just
Martin?) whether they want to use weblate instead (honestly don't know
the reason why pootle wasn't used - I mean you could still translate
offline and push the po files to pootle (and now weblate) to have them
part of the same update process)

If I should switch to using weblate as source, let me know.

Finally, any idea to know where is the pb when we got this:

[build HPX] ta/helpcontent2/source/text/smath/guide
Entity: line 1: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: ahelp
line 0 and root
Indeed, with these characters, impossible to git grep or search in

You'll have an easier time with those using the tinderbox/jenkins logs
where the output is properly encoded:

problems like this - that is bugs in translations affecting multiple
