Good catch. Unfortunately, that's one part of bug 128324 which we didn't consider in advance. Though, there are actually two problems here:

 * we should not be displaying 'packaged' suggestion here and offering user an option to select it
 * it's treated as a 'new suggestion'

So, our approach to solving bug 128324 has fixed it for the 'untranslated' filter, but introduced it for the 'unreviewed' filter. Now, the best solution is probably to keep the date of the "automatic" translation always newer than the packaged one, but as packaged one changes, that may prove cumbersome.

We'll have to spend more time thinking about this, but it's roughly the problem of same complexity as bug 128324, so I can't promise it'll be fixed soon.

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

Another alternative might be to put a date far into the future for the automated message (June 17th, 2100) so nothing shows up as 'new' compared to it.

summary: - Translation credits apper to have new suggestions

AIUI this is somewhat cosmetic, we have a system managed translation that offers suggestions - weird but harmless. I'm marking low as such things aren't really in our current roadmap. Of course, if I'm wrong, a translations expert will be putting it back to high in no time :0

Changed in launchpad:
importance: High → Low
