Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 442970
Need translations for .policy file
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:55:35 EST
The PolicyKit .policy from PackageKit file lacks translations. Leads to
situations like seen in bug 442938 comment 3.
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'.
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.
