Description Carlos Munoz 2015-06-23 22:49:40 UTC
Description of problem:
The statistics API is currently taking into account copied translations and awarding credit to the original translator. In order to keep a more accurate track of a translator's contributions, copied translations should not be counted as 'Translated' strings. They should either be not counted, or counted as a different type of contribution.

Comment 1 David Mason 2015-06-24 06:32:32 UTC
This is caused because Copy Trans copies the original translator into the translator field.

Estimated implementation:

 - Need to record more metadata:
    - copied from copy version (100%)
    - copied with version merge (100%)
    - copied by copy trans ("project auto-fill") (100%)
    - copied with TM merge (100% can be copied as Translated)

 - Does metadata apply to just the revision, or stay on the text flow for its lifetime?
    - Just the history entry has it.
        Don't want later edits to be uncredited, since the point is to be able to see the amount of actual work done by a translator.
    - Wipe the metadata on the HTextFlowTarget when an edit is made.

        Changing from fuzzy to translated (without new text)
        will make a new revision. This is fine because you
        have contributed by reviewing it.

Technical note: wiping metadata when creating a revision is done for revision comments at the moment, so use that for reference.

Stats that should be influenced by not recording copies as translations:
 - User profile page (All contributions by a single user across all projects.)
 - Contribution API stats (Contributions to a particular project per-user.)
