Translation Team/Pootle Administration
Work in progress ....
Pootle in Sugar is actually unmaintained.
We (godiard / martin_xsa / erikos) are trying to resolve the pending issues because we need working translations but need a real maintainer.
The last maintainer was Sayamindu Dasgupta and we asked he our doubts, i am putting here this information.
The pootle directory is /var/lib/pootle The translations live in /var/lib/pootle/translations
- Each branch (eg: glucose-0.90) is a directory in the translations directory
Each project is a subdirectory inside this directory (eg: glucose-0.90/sugar) These are actually symlinks to directories /var/lib/pootle/checkouts
- There's a script called pootlepopulator.py It is invoked as
pootlepopulator.py category GIT_URL checkout_directory [branch] So, assuming the directory /var/lib/pootle/translations/sucrose-0.90 exists, you can issue a command:
pootlepopulator.py sucrose-0.90 git://dev.laptop.org/git/sugar sugar
The script can be found in maintainance/helpers directory in /var/lib/pootle
- Once this is done, you need to create project in Pootle admin - go
to admin->projects and createa project called Sucrose 0.90 with the code sucrose-0.90 (same as the directory name)
- Restart Pootle and Apache if the new project does not show up after this...
- Add the new projects to maintenance/helpers/potupdater/project_list.ini
Working in git in the pootle server
The git operations must be done by the pootle user:
sudo -u pootle git log
sudo -u pootle git push origin sucrose-0.82
If the maintainer did a commit with a file in the po directory we will have a conflict, and Pootle can not do a pull.
Pootle build the pot file from the sources, if we compare and the translations are updated in pootle we can do a pull preserving the info in pootle:
sudo -u pootle git pull -s ours
