[Rosetta] How can I select an input target for translations?

Asked by Dmitry Shachnev on 2011-07-28

Here is the filtered import queue for my project:

These two translations have been stuck in the "NEEDS_REVIEW"/"No input target selected yet." state for more than 2 days. How can I get them imported?

You can't at the moment, but we'll be soon opening it up to project maintainers (see bug 800123). However, they have not been auto-approved because they are under a different path (po.unity-mail.desktop/) compared to the two existing templates: po.unity-mail-autostart.desktop/ for desktop-file and po/ for unity-mail). Unless you use the identical path, Launchpad can't guess what template it needs to go to.

If you want them approved, either wait for bug 800123 to be rolled out, or fix paths, or let us know which template they belong to.

These were generated by Fabien Tassin's desktop2gettext.py tool. It names the template as "desktop_file", but I should use different directories for every file because it rewrites the contents.

Thank you for pointing me to this, I'll rename the templates.

Any reason you are not using intltool setup which can extract translations from your .desktop files for you? (All of GNOME uses that, for instance)

(It also puts them into a single POT file, which many feel is much better than having a POT file per desktop file)

Does it support quicklists?
