Re: [libreoffice-l10n] Please clarify translation deadlines

Hi Christian,

Thanks for the explanation. However, it's not explained on either of the wiki pages mentioned earlier that tags are created already on the previous week. Would you mind adding that bit of information?

Or better yet, there is a "whiteboard" feature in Weblate, which allows admins to send messages to translators. It would be good to have the deadlines announced in advance. Or this mailing list or the wiki could also be used.

I've been updating a lot of the Finnish translations of LO recently

There was a bug/oversight that caused a problem here: not all
translations that were done on weblate were actually flushed out and
committed to the repository when I prepared the 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,

No, you missed something up. While it is true that if translations are
done on Monday, they are included in the release, since prepping of
the tag typically happens Tuesday evening or on Wednesday.
But it needs to be the Monday of the tag-creation week, not the one of
the final release announcement. The last RC is renamed and released as
final, so no updates to translations are possible.
So for 6.4.0 the translations the deadline would have been January 20.
I did export the translations from weblate on Tuesday the 21st - but
as mentioned that didn't include all translations that were done in
pootle, the changes only were partially reflected in the repository.

but this clearly isn't the case. Did I misunderstand
something, is the information in the wiki wrong, or was there some other

Both a misunderstanding (the RC week is the deadline, not final
release), and specifically for 6.4.0 there also was another issue.
