Bug Description

It seems to be a consensus that success notifications for translation imports from packages are not really useful. We should send them out only on failures. This will affect bazaar support as well.

The thing to decide on is whether to also send out notifications about problems in only a few messages in a translation.

Ubuntu packagers, please speak up.

Changed in rosetta:
importance: Undecided → High
status: New → Triaged

To clarify, these are types of problems that can happen with translation imports from packages:
 • encoding or syntax error in a PO file: complete file rejected
 • bad po-revision-date: complete file rejected, bug see bug 331094
 • a single message has some problems (i.e. c-format specifiers do not match): that message is rejected (or others failing msgfmt -c checks), but all others are accepted

Basically, since notifications are to help fix problems with translations in packages (i.e. packagers should know how and where to ask for stuff to be fixed), we need to decide what information is useful for notifying about. Once bug 331094 is fixed, the number of failure messages will go significantly down, so that will be fixed first. For other two points, I believe it's worth to notify on both.

Seb makes a good point: there's nothing he can do about the third point (i.e. stuff like c-format specifiers not matching in a message or two), so we could notify ubuntu-l10n-xx team in those cases instead.

This bug is not fixed.

I have gotten a hundred or so emails from _normal_ KDE uploads. I fear what I will get once the language packages are uploaded.

As clarified on IRC, this happens only for template uploads (i.e. POT files, which are not translations, but English basis for translation). Filed as bug #353648.

You should not worry about translations, you'll get only failure notifications for those.
