Translations and git

Asked by Julian Mehne on 2017-11-28

Hi,

apologies if this is answered somewhere - I couldn't find a definite answer:

Is it possible to use the translations infrastructure with a git repository (no importing into bzr involved)? As far as I can see you can only select a `series` as source for imports into the translations infrastructure, which can only be an (imported) bzr branch.

I'm asking, because our bzr imports from Github choke on the `gpgsig` tag (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bzr-git/+bug/1084403) and if there's no way to directly use a git repository I guess I need to rewrite the whole history to remove that tag - which I obviously would like to avoid, if possible at all.

It isn't possible yet. It's a gap I'd like to close, and in fact I did start some work on it recently, but there are several things to sort out, not least that we need to work out a good equivalent for the series-linked branch model in git.

Thanks Colin Watson, that solved my question.
