Bug Description

Dear collegues,

i've checked current russian translation in horizon repository and find out that we have wrong plural formula in upstream.


There is only 3 plural forms in Russian.
And correct formula should be
nplurals=3; plural=(n%10==1 && n%100!=11 ? 0 : n%10>=2 && n%10<=4 && (n%100<10 || n%100>=20) ? 1 : 2);

Looks like some script is wrong.
Does anybody know how to fix it?

Kind regards,
Ilya Alekseyev

Below are the steps we previously used.
We can follow the same steps.
I think the statistic data will not be affected in step 1 to 5.
But, if we delete master-old, the contribution data in master-old will be removed.
So my suggestion is to do the same steps, and keep master-old version (mark it as readonly)
till 6 month or 12 month later when the contribution data is not that important.

Hi, all

I have fixed the bug.
I documented the detail comments here, for future reference:

1. Create an empty version named as master-fix in Horizon project in Zanata

2. Install zanata-cli if you haven't.

3. Create the config file - zanata.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<config xmlns="http://zanata.org/namespace/config/">
    <rule pattern="./horizon/locale/*.pot">horizon/locale/{locale_with_underscore}/LC_MESSAGES/{filename}.po</rule>
    <rule pattern="./openstack_dashboard/locale/*.pot">openstack_dashboard/locale/{locale_with_underscore}/LC_MESSAGES/{filename}.po</rule>

4. Pull translations by:
zanata-cli pull --pull-type both -l ru

5. Correct the headers of Russian translation files, including

The correct header setting should be:
"Plural-Forms: nplurals=3; plural=(n%10==1 && n%100!=11 ? 0 : n%10>=2 && n"
"%10<=4 && (n%100<10 || n%100>=20) ? 1 : 2);\n"

6. Generate the new Russian translation files with only pluralities translation items by following commands:

cp django.po django-tmp.po
grep -v msgstr.2. django-tmp.po > django.po
sed -i s/msgstr.3./msgstr[2]/ django.po
cp django.po django-tmp.po
sed -i s/'msgid_plural "'/'msgid_plural "AAABBB'/ django-tmp.po
msggrep --msgid -F -e 'AAABBB' django-tmp.po -o django.po
sed -i s/'msgid_plural "AAABBB'/'msgid_plural "'/ django.po
rm django-tmp.po

We need to process all the 4 Russian translation files and create the new version with only pluralities translation items.

7. Change the config file - zanata.xml, make sure to use master-fix version.

8. Upload the source file together with the new translation files into Zanata by:

zanata-cli push --push-type both --disable-ssl-cert --copy-trans false -l ru

9. Copy translations from master version into master-fix version.

10. Rename master version into master-old, and set it as ReadOnly.
Please don't delete master-old, because it has the translation contribution statistic data. We can delete it after 6 month, at least.

11. Rename master-fix version into master.

Is there any reason we keep this bug as Fix Committed? What do we need to do before closing this as Fix Released?

One problem in Launchpad is that it is rather difficult to find this bug again for future reference.

For bug purposes, yep I agree that it is much better to close this bug as "Fix Released" so I have just changed the status.

I am not sure how to well document how to solve this bug in current I18n contributor guide, but I documented at least on Wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/I18nTeam/Handling_Bugs . Maybe in future, we might need to re-organize how to make I18n contributor guide more structured.
