Timeout on trying to export translations to branch

Asked by jomammele


I'm trying to export https://translations.launchpad.net/openpetraorg/trunk/ to https://code.launchpad.net/~jomammele/openpetraorg/translationfiles but I get the following message.
(I'm using the page https://translations.launchpad.net/openpetraorg/trunk/+link-translations-branch in order to do it.)

I was already trying this several times some days ago but the problem still persists.

What can I do?


Timeout error

Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad.

We’ve recorded what happened, and we’ll fix it as soon as possible. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Trying again in a couple of minutes might work.

Thank you,
my problem is solved now.

I already got another mail from youguys which gave me further instructions on what to do.
This was quite helpful.

Here the mail:

There was a problem with translations branch synchronization for
OpenPetra.org trunk series.

Branch synchronization for this release series has been set up to commit
translations snapshots to the bzr branch at lp:~jomammele/openpetraorg/translationfiles.

That branch does not appear to have been pushed to Launchpad yet.
Please create a branch on your own system that matches your needs, and
then push it to Launchpad using "bzr push lp:~jomammele/openpetraorg/translationfiles".

You'll need the bzr tool. If all you want is an empty branch for the
translations to go into, you can create one using the following command

    bzr launchpad-login USERNAME

Instead of USERNAME, type your Launchpad login name. Then:

    bzr init translations-export
    cd translations-export
    bzr commit --unchanged -m "Translations branch."
    bzr push lp:~jomammele/openpetraorg/translationfiles

This will create an empty branch on Launchpad. It should be updated
with translations within the day. You can update the branch on your
system with the latest changes on Launchpad by going back into the
translations-export directory and typing this command:

    bzr pull --remember lp:~jomammele/openpetraorg/translationfiles
