Description Piotr Drąg 2009-08-29 16:37:27 UTC
Would you please add and sponsor 'transif' user in sssd FAS group? It would allow us to submit translations using [1].


Comment 1 Stephen Gallagher 2009-08-31 11:15:41 UTC
The SSSD upstream is currently in discussions with the Transifex team on how best to approach translations. Our upstream code submission policy prohibits the submission of any patch that has not been approved by one of the repository "gatekeepers". At present, that means Simo Sorce, Sumit Bose or myself.

Providing a "transif" user would allow translators to bypass our patch review process, which is an unacceptable risk, considering that the SSSD is a core security package.

We would much prefer that Transifex provided us with a review mechanism that would alert us when a patch was ready for submission and then one of the gatekeepers could authorize it before it was committed to the tree.

It should be noted that Transifex has access only to directories confined by file filter (like 'po') and accept only plain text files. Also next version will be able to submit translations directly to maintainer's e-mail.

The SSSD now has an active translation project at:
