Description David Zeuthen 2008-04-17 17:51:33 EDT
The PolicyKit .policy from PackageKit file lacks translations. Leads to
situations like seen in bug 442938 comment 3.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2008-04-17 17:55:49 EDT
One idea that has been brought up is to try using transifex for this. 

Would probably be good for both sides, PackageKit gets translations, and
transifex gets a high-profile 'customer'.

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/FAQ#add-transifex

Isn't this Fedora/Red Hat specific? I'm not that comfortable tying upstream
PackageKit into Fedora like that, as the SuSe/Ubuntu guys would have to go
through Fedora transifex, which might be politically a hot potato. I've tried
really hard to banish the NIH argument for the creation of PackageKit and I'm
pretty sure this would reinforce the argument the wrong way.

I hear what you are saying, but I think you are being overly cautious. 

In fact, asking for translations by strangers on your blog is a bit dangerous as
you have no chance of verifying them. In contrast to using teams like Transifex,
the Ubuntu effort or the gnome i18n team. Maybe I should just have submitted
some Danish translations with dirty/abusive content to make a point.

Maybe my tirade works better if Richard had added himself to the Cc

I've asked for transifex access so we can evaluate this.
