Description Rui Gouveia 2010-05-04 10:33:08 UTC
Description of problem:


Every time I access the Fedora Project website (http://fedoraproject.org/), I am greeted with the pt_BR version of it. In my Firefox I've got defined the languages "pt, en". So, I'm thinking that if the site ignores my language
preferences, I should have received the English version, if not, and the
pt is not an option, I should receive the English version as well, and
not the Brazilian.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

All releases so far.

How reproducible:

Access the website with a Language preference different from English.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open browser.
2. Define a language different from English.
3. Access the website fedoraproject.org
Actual results:

I got the pt_BR version of the site

Expected results:

The pt_PT page version of the site

Additional info:

Thanks for your time.

Or default to en_EN if no pt_PT is available. IMHO, may include a link to pt_BR.

Comment 2 Miloš Komarčević 2010-05-04 20:43:56 UTC
Well, I actually think it is doing the correct thing, as specified by http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4647

You asked for "pt" (country unspecified), you get the closest available match.

Comment 3 Rui Gouveia 2010-05-05 00:06:51 UTC
Hi Miloš,

Unfortunately, Firefox doesn't have a "pt-PT" version of this string. The available options are "pt" for Portuguese and "pt-br" for Brasilean. So I couldn't test your theory. But I tested it with the German language.

I've tried both: "de" and "de_CH". When I choose "de" as preferred language in Firefox, I get the "de" page. When I choose "de_CH" I get the "de_CH" page.

So, why doesn't this works exactly like this for "pt"?

Besides, when the country is not specified shouldn't the Portuguese from Portugal be served, provided a translation exists?

I think this is clearly the Infrastructure issue, would you mind filing a ticket at their Trac instance?

How do I do that?
I looked around and couldn't find a way of submitting a ticket.

Comment 7 Piotr Drąg 2010-05-05 16:55:07 UTC
You need to log in with your FAS user name and password first (it's just under search box). Then click on the 'New Ticket' tab which will appear.

Comment 8 Rui Gouveia 2010-05-05 22:34:54 UTC
Silly me. I was using a different login. :(

Comment 9 Miloš Komarčević 2010-05-06 10:16:39 UTC
Rui, I misunderstood, I wasn't clear from your initial report the "pt" translation existed. I agree it should be matched if it exists.
