Bug Description

This is a regression from bug 562872

Looking at the the xkeyboard-config (2.3-1ubuntu1) changelog it seems that the template update generation rule was dropped from the package, causing again an outdated POT file being uploaded and some strings neither being translatable in Launchpad nor being translated in language packs.

Please re-add the POT template building logic.

Ok, so how does launchpad get the updated pot-file? From the source package, or in-flight during the build?

The issue I had (why I removed the logic) was that it left the source tree in an unclean state after a test build, and failed to see the bigger picture so I just dropped it. There are options around that, but I need to be sure the updated file is included properly before a new version is uploaded.

Ok I think this is sufficiently fixed now. The build creates an updated po/xkeyboard-config.pot, and clean restores the original one. Will upload a new version soon.

During the build pkgbinarymangler puts all the PO files and the POT file
inside a translations tarball. It picks up any POT file it finds, either
one that is present in the source package, or one that is
generated/updated during the build. The latter is always the best
option, since it ensures the template is always up to date and that
we're not exposing a stale template in Launchpad.

After the build, the translations tarball is picked up by Soyuz, which
then passes it to the Ubuntu translations import queue. From there, once
the PO and POT files it contains are approved, they are imported into
Launchpad Translation.

This bug was fixed in the package xkeyboard-config - 2.3-1ubuntu2

xkeyboard-config (2.3-1ubuntu2) oneiric; urgency=low

  * rules: Bring back the pot file build, very much needed still.
    This time move the original file away during build, and restore
    on clean. (LP: #868554)
