Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 863917
No way of telling whether your Zanata push worked
Last modified: 2013-07-01 18:56:29 EDT
Description of problem:
When pushing topics to Zanata, there is no way to tell if your push has silently failed or silently succeeded.
Message when pushing to Zanata says:
Successfully uploaded your topic to Zanata as Topicid-RevisionNumber
Push to Zanata failed, please try again. If you are unable to successfully push your topic through to Zanata after two attempts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cite the following error:
_____ INSERT HELPFUL PRESSGANG ZANATA INTEGRATION ERROR MESSAGE HERE _____
Set severity to high because we've been burned once, and because there is a lot of human intervention involved in this integration already.
Boy would it be nice to have some indication of whether a push failed or succeeded.

Tim, can you please provide an example of when this has happened and what its impact was?
While I'm not Tim, I can partly give some data. We've only had this happen once so far (or that I'm aware of) and it was around the start of this month. The result was that ~30 topics (it seemed to be about every second topic) wasn't pushed to Zanata, however they were created as Translated Topics in Skynet. As such I manually had to go through and find which topics weren't successfully pushed and repush them.
As for the issue of the Translated Topics being created in Skynet this has been fixed as of Wednesday 10th of October. Now the Translated Topic won't be created unless it is successfully created in Zanata first. So the topics will show up in the build as if they haven't been pushed will make it easier to find.
As for this RFE we'll take a look at providing a way to view the results once our team is back from holidays, as I'm the only one here.
Since this functionality has been removed and all pushes are now done by the csprocessor, which does inform you if something has gone wrong. I'm going to close this as CANTFIX.
