Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Please clarify translation deadlines


Hi Ming,

Thanks for the explanation. I think there's something else going on too, though, because it looks like even changes older than Jan 20 - Jan 26 didn't make it in. For example, an item in the Help menu:

https://weblate.documentfoundation.org/translate/libo_ui-master/officecfgregistrydataorgopenofficeofficeui/fi/?checksum=3a686476bd15eb83#history
Weblate says this is three weeks old (no exact date unfortunately).

It was also correctly propagated to 6.4 branch, so that not the issue here:

Subject: [libreoffice-l10n] Please clarify translation deadlines

I've been updating a lot of the Finnish translations of LO recently
(translated in Weblate on master branch, automatically propagated to 6.3
and 6.4) However, I noticed many of them didn't make it to the 6.4.0
release. Reading [1] and [2], I was under the impression that
translations made on Monday 27th January or earlier should have been
picked up in 6.4.0, but this clearly isn't the case. Did I misunderstand
something, is the information in the wiki wrong, or was there some other
issue?

[1] https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Translating_LibreOffice
[2] https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan

While I agree the deadline section of [1] is not clear, one thing you missed
is that for the final release of a version (i.e. not RC1, RC2, etc.),
there is an
extra week of "wait for testing and make sure no showstopper in there"
period, and the actual code-changing deadline should be a week before the
release week, the same as the last RC. So for the 6.4.0 case, the code was
tagged in Git sometime in the Jan. 20th - Jan. 26th week [3], and your
expectation of Jan 27th was definitely too late.

I'll leave the clarification of the exact dates to others.

Hope this helps,
Ming
