Bug for package descriptions

Asked by Xuacu Saturio

Hi!
Package descriptions are affected by this bug
https://bugs.launchpad.net/apt/+bug/391409

In short, when requesting package descriptions for a three letters langcode, apt is trying to fetch descriptions for the first two letters langcode (e.g. for Asturian (ast) apt calls Assamese (as))

The bug is reported to debbugs, with no results so far.

Does this affect NightMonkey? If so, it may result in unexpected descriptions for new users...

Regards.

Hi!

I hope answer is simple and right: No. Nightmonkey works with exported po files from launchpad. So if launchpad exports three letters languages' translations in three letters po file everything should be fine.

Anyway I checked the Asturian language in Nightmonkey and it gives me links with ast lang code.

Cool!

Thank you very much for testing it, I was curious about the possibility of strange characters appearing into Software Center ;)

Regards.
