Need help with integration of gnome-control-center from upstream. Ordinary methods not working

Asked by TLE on 2007-06-06

The problem in short is that the translation in Launchpad of gnome-control-center is all messed up. I'm not talking about wrong or erroneous translations but what appear to be msgid and msgstr that has gotten mixed up. This upstream version is correct. I have tried uploading the upstream translation manually in both of the two different ways it can be done (user and published) and they get imported but the result is that same. There still are the same mixed up translations. A short example to illustrate the problem. First the upstream correct version:
#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:3
msgid "<b>Email</b>"
msgstr "<b>E-post</b>"

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:4
msgid "<b>Home</b>"
msgstr "<b>Hjem</b>"

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:23
msgid "Co_untry:"
msgstr "_Land:"

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:24
msgid "Contact"
msgstr "Kontakt"

And the very wrong LP versions

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:3
msgid "<b>Email</b>"
msgstr "<b>Datoer</b>"

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:4
msgid "<b>Home</b>"
msgstr "<b>Datoer</b>"

Here both Email and Home is translated into the Danish words for dates

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:23
msgid "Co_untry:"
msgstr "Control"

#: ../capplets/about-me/gnome-about-me.glade.h:24
msgid "Contact"
msgstr "_Indhold"

And here Country and Contact are translated into respectively Control (in english) and the Danish word Contents also note the inconsistencies in the _ used for hotkeys.

If anybody that has access to the inner workings of LP wants to check out this behavior it is quite easy because it is the same way they are messes up every time so if you want to know if it succeeded, you can just check the examples above.
This is the link to the page in LP that contains the translation https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/feisty/+source/control-center/+pots/control-center-2.0/da and here is the link to the upstream file that I would like to have replace the one that is currently in LP http://l10n.gnome.org/POT/gnome-control-center.gnome-2-18/gnome-control-center.gnome-2-18.da.po (I have checked with all the relevant people and they are ok with the translation just being replaced with the upstream one. We do almost all Gnome translations upstream anyway)

I hope someone can help me with this.

Now that it is possible I reverted the strings to upstream and therefore the problem has been fixed
