Bug Description

Binary package hint: language-pack-gnome-ml

There was a bug reported to remove rosetta translation from gnome language pack for Ubuntu : Refer:https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/language-pack-gnome-ml/+bug/368387
Still in 9.10 we see gnome translations are overridden by wrong and obsolete translations from rosetta.

The gnome l10n is done by Swathanthra Malayalam Computing community(http://smc.org.in) and works closely with gnome upstream. This community does not contribute to rosetta since it is duplication of effort and does not want the work to be BSD licensed[http://tweetphoto.com/813iww]. While every other distro use gnome upstream translations, ubuntu override it with very old and wrong rosetta translations. This make the Malayalam desktop of ubuntu very bad.

Expected result: Don't override gnome translations with rosetta translations

Looking at the attachments in this bug report, I noticed that "wrong translations in 9.10" was flagged as a patch. A patch contains changes to an Ubuntu package that will resolve a bug, since this was not one I've unchecked the patch flag for it. In the future keep in mind the definition of a patch. You can learn more about what qualifies as a patch at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Patches. Thanks!

A new team for Malyalam translations has been formed, now only decisons for it to work closely with the SMC, has to be made. Hence I have changed the bug-status to "In progress" and assigned it to myself.
