Bug Description

The unity8 translation domain was changed on launchpad to unity89280 (unsure who/when/why, there are no logs of such changes), the result is that the most recent langpack update for ota8 rolled back to an export from 2015-06-15, creating issues on some locales

see https://launchpadlibrarian.net/225809580/language-pack-touch-hu_1%3A15.04%2B20151104_1%3A15.04%2B20151111.diff.gz as an example pointed on IRC

" msgctxt "Title: Power off/Restart dialog"
 msgid "Power"
-msgstr "Menü"
+msgstr "Főkapcsoló""

the new translation has been reported as incorrect

summary: - unity8 translations revert to june versions
+ unity8 translations reverted to june version in most recent langpack

Maybe other packages are affected too? For instance: indicator-datetime.

@Robin, can you provide an example of string in indicator datetime that was translated and is not anymore?

For example:

-#. Translators, please edit/rearrange these strftime(3) tokens to suit your locale!
-#. This format string is used for showing, on a 24-hour clock, times that happened in the last week.
-#. (\u2003 is a unicode em space which is slightly wider than a normal space.)
-#. en_US example: "%a\u2003%H:%M" --> "Fri 13:00"
-#: plugins/Utils/relativetimeformatter.cpp:225
-msgid "%a %H:%M"
-msgstr "%a %H.%M"

But weird, because this is translated right, but I see this on my phone:

Sze 08:00

insted of

Sze 08.00
