Mining Launchpad for process analysis

Asked by Aram Morera Mesa on 2011-07-08

Hi, I am doing research in workflows in localisation and I would love to do data mining using data from Launchpad. I am mainly interested in the logs that have a connection with Rosetta, since I am looking at localisation processes.

Is there someone I can contact regarding this?

What information do you want?

I do not know what components there are in Launchpad, so it is not easy to ask. I am interested in the kind of interactions that happen in Rosetta. I do not need IPs, names or anything that could compromise a person's privacy: I just need some manner to identify unique users, what they do and when they do it. I am interested in seeing things like the number of translations for one string that are suggested before a reviewer accepts it, how many people do suggestions for one project, how often people click on "someone should review this translation", how long does it take for a reviewers to accept translations, if people use this I guess anonymized logs for a few projects and maybe two languages per project (let's say Spanish and German) would be the way to go for me, but I do not know if that is possible. I can see in the interface that the suggestions, the authors and the times are stored, I guess in a database, so the anonymized versions of the relevant tables would probably work well for me too. I am also keen on seeing the suggestions Rosetta makes using the translations used in other packages. Sorry about the lack of specificity, I hope this gives you an idea, though. It would really be amazingly helpful for my research if I could get that kind of data.

Unfortunately we don't collect the data you're interested in.

Aram, can you give us some background (maybe a web page) about your affiliation and your research project?

Aram_mm (aram-mm) said : #5

Thanks for your answer Martin. I am part of the CNGL, you can find me on the list of researchers here:
You can also find me here, although the topic has to be updated.
If you look at the programme of this conference you can see that I gave a talk in it.
What I am looking at now is the integration of the community in highly automated workflows. I have been looking at tools like Pootle, Crowdin and Launchpad's Rosetta.
I hope that is enough, if you have any specific information request, let me know.

Can you help with this problem?
