Add a translations template

Asked by Emilien Klein


Until a few days ago, everything was working OK, we had a template in our bzr branch that got automatically imported into Launchpad. However, now the import queue has been flushed, there is not a single file that is marked for import (FYI we had several files that got automatically imported that I asked to be removed, cf:

The project is BaShare:
I would like the file "./BaShare/.lang/.pot" to be automatically imported in the template called "bashare", as it was 2 days ago.

If you look at the import queue, you will see that it is completely empty:

As a side note, this problem might be related to fixing the bug #446160, as it got detected by Henning Eggers while working on the previously cited question.

In case of doubt, Jeroen Vermeulen had already helped us setting up this file as a translation template.

The template has automatically imported again, after a commit. However, the question about why ALL the templates disappeared still remains...

Strange! It can't be the fix for bug 446160, because 3.1.10 (which fixes that one) hasn't rolled out yet. It should have by now, but the rollout was postponed—a lucky thing for us, because we'd have ended up chasing red herrings.

The version of the template I'm seeing now was last updated on 2009-10-30 14:18:20 UTC. Staging, which was last updated on 2009-10-25, still has a copy from 2009-10-09 14:45:47 UTC. Neither of these has any problems that I can see.

All I can think of is that the templates you deleted from the branch must have caused the branch-import approver to disable some of the templates.

Indeed, everything came back to normal now, the already approved templates got re-imported automatically, and the new templates that have been added after are showing as needing review, but all seems OK.

I think that the problem was only present for a few days, starting around 2009-10-27 (first reported in, and the situation was fixed maybe around 2009-10-30...

I'm not sure about your proposed reason, as I've reported this question on 2009-10-28 10:40:17 CET, but removed the templates after, at 2009-10-28 17:05:37 CET (rev 75).

I guess we can close this question/answer (I never know how to refer to those...) for now, as we won't be able to reproduce this for now. But maybe it'll help someone in the future...

Thanks for taking the time to look into it.

Reading this again I think I may have misunderstood earlier: if the problem was only with the import queue, not with the actual templates in the database, it's possible that some branch updates did not get noticed (or noticed very slowly because the system was very busy) and the older queue entries got cleaned up in the meantime. That wouldn't be a cause for worry.

FWIW the approval logic for branch imports does not disable templates as I thought earlier.
