Bug Description

Binary package hint: flex-old

When scanning the import queue in Launchpad Rosetta for issues that need manual intervention, I found the following issue with the flex-old package, which prevents a smooth import into Launchpad Rosetta and causes the Ubuntu Translation Coordinators to manually adjust or remove .po files.

in the po/ directory the flex-old.pot template file is missing. Therefor corresponding .po files cannot be imported into Rosetta and won't appear in the language-packs.
If the translations are not used anyways, please consider to remove the po/ directory.
If the translations should be used, please fix the build script to actually build the .pot file.

For general guidelines how to ensure smooth imports into Launchpad Rosetta, please see:

The translation domain is still „flex” so we should see a flex.pot file.

The source package should be patched to use a flex-old domain, otherwise we will have a conflict with the newer version of flex.

I don't know if it's worth fixing this package.
