The pootle directory is: /var/lib/pootle== Tools ==
The translations live * {{Code|potupdater/pogenerator.py}} pulls from git and svn so we have updated sources, then it generates a new .pot file from them. Translated strings get reflected in: the .po files in each module, and when the language maintainer clicks the Commit to VCS link, get pushed back to the upstream module.* {{Code|admin/pootlepopulator.py}} checkout sources.* {{Code|misc/pootle.cron}} all daily basis routines.* ''...''
/var/lib/pootle/translations== Tips ==
=== Creating branches: ===
* When there are '''commit to cvs/update to cvs''' links missing in activities or projects please check git url in .git/config , this URL must be writable by pootle.

{{Code|'''checkouts'''}}<br>
Modules are checked out in this directory. pogenerator.py pulls from git and svn so we have updated sources, then it generates a new .pot file from them. Translated strings get reflected in the .po files in each module, and when the language maintainer clicks the Commit to VCS link, get pushed back to the upstream module.
 
{{Code|'''dbs'''}}<br>
Iternal db used by Pootle, no need to mess directly with it.
 
{{Code|'''maintenance'''}}<br>
