Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431125
Translations not being committed upstream
Last modified: 2013-07-02 20:46:54 EDT
No new translations (sk, sr, sr@latin, nl, as) are getting through to
system-config-date for the past two weeks. Also, its seems that the last batch
of updated translations (not talking about recent update-po but gu, it, pt_BR)
were committed by the package maintainer on Fri Jan 18 17:29:17 2008 +0100
directly instead of coming through Transifex. Compare hg and transifex logs:
From what I see in the logs of the module in question, there have been some
successful commits. Maybe this is DUPE of #303991?
Where do you see that? I haven't seen anything coming from Transifex through to
hg for this module for a while, only direct commits to po/* by the maintainer.
The last successful one was on Jan 4:
The single Transifex commit that appeared yesterday by Fabian Affolter seems to
be borked (created po/de.po.orig and po/de.po.rej). Where are all the other
commits that showed up in the web log in the meantime?
Don't think this is (or was) a dupe of bug 303991, since I didn't get the 500
error. Everything seemed successful and logged on the web side, just nothing
came through to hg.
OK, I tracked this down today. The VCS user we are using didn't have permissions
to that repository, so pushed commits failed. This happened also in s-c-nfs, for
which I opened bug #433542.
Now, this is a serious problem, since we want to constantly keep Tx in sync with
upstream to avoid conflicts. However, mercurial is a bit picky in reverting
stuff back if they fail getting pushed.
If local commits stay in the repo and new stuff arrive upstream, all subsequent
pushes will fail because the introduce new remote heads. To battle this, we need
to check if a push fails, rollback the last commit right away.
FWIW, this is easily fixable, since a removal of the local repo copy and a new
Refresh will do the trick, albeit losing all unpushed commits so far.
Leaving the bug report open until we fix this properly.
Mass change of component from Transifex to Website, since all our websites are handled by Transifex now.
