Software Center help translations not provided

Bug Description


while testing the latest version of Ubuntu for the upcoming release, I openend the help of Software Center in order to see if the translations provided were shipped.

Even with all the latest langpacks installed, this is not happening, the help is still in English, even if the translations from the upstream development branch are complete. This is happening for my locale (Italian) with langpack installed in date 2011-10-07. We need confirmation from other languages too.

Thank you for your attention.

I have requested an export:
This file contains 43 help documents.
lists 63 languages (I ran grep -c "+translate\"" /tmp/software-center-doc.html on the locally saved page)
of which 7 have 0 translated strings, so the export should contain 56 - that's 13 more than it actually contains.
Full translations to bs, el, hu, sl, vi are missing from the export, and these languages with more than 50% coverage too: nb, zh_HK, sk, lv, ms, lb, ro.

Well, taking another look at that export, everything is there:

Only problem is that the tarball contains two directories: software-center-doc with 43 translations (those already in bzr), and po/help with 21 more translations, including all those I listed as missing in comment #3.

Hi Michael

Thanks for the merge!
When is this next SRU scheduled? For help translations to be delivered, a "full" language pack update is needed, and the next one is scheduled for the first days of January: .
If we want this fix to be released with that update, a new package should hit -proposed soon, before the end of the year.
Is it possible to do this?

Hello Milo, or anyone else affected,

Accepted software-center into oneiric-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
