Hi Mihail,

I noticed two unusual things working with Weblate lately:
- There are sporadic 'Delete entry' buttons. Why do they appear only for a
small percentage of the entries and what do they actually do?

I assume you refer to the entries in the "Automatic Suggestion" area
from the weblate translation memory.

Weblate has a three-tier translation memory:
* the project's translation memory, that can also optionally create
all new entries into an
* instance-wide shared translation memory
* and finally a user-specific translation memory

So you'll see delete entry buttons for the strings coming from your
user translation memory, for strings that you translated in the past
within weblate.

I would very
much like to delete erroneous or obsolete entries but the button never
appears on any of them.

If you point me to those invalid entries, I can remove them.

- Sometimes there is no similarity percentage. This hampers productivity
noticeably because when I know that a string is a 100% match, I can just
click through, otherwise I have to copy and compare in an external program.

Also please provide a link for that.

This link illustrates both:

Those kind of links are not stable, what it points to is depending on
what you translate, better use the "copy permalink" option (the little
chain-link icon at the top-right of the translation area)

Looking at
I see it has entries from weblate's translation memory as well as from
the amagama server, the tmserver entries. That contains old strings
from pootle, from the time before weblate was used. So old strings
from tmserver, new strings from weblate's translation memory.
And I guess weblate just doesn't return amagama's quality score
(Levenshtein distance), but all results returned by amagama have at
least a 75% confidence (from amaGama's POV), but that's just comparing
against the source string, so not sure whether it is suitable to also
show it....
