Change the translations export branch

Asked by Emilien Klein

While setting up the translations for my project, I tried to put
as the branch to which export the .po files. However, this was not recognized, so I wanted to add
which is the same branch as lp:issuetrackertracker.

In order to add this branch, I put "main" in the search box. It returned one branch:
which is the original development branch that I don't use anymore.

It was my mistake to not have seen that the wrong branch got returned from the search, but now the export has been done to the wrong branch. Now I am trying to change the branch, but if I enter "~itt-devs/issuetrackertracker/main" I always get an error message.

Could someone change the export branch for trunk to point to lp:issuetrackertracker, i.e. lp:~itt-devs/issuetrackertracker/main?


Edit: I originally hadn't seen the yellow edit button, doh...

It seems that Launchpad does only want me to add branches for which I am personally the owner, but the branch that I want to add has the developer's group as owner. I'm the administrator of this group, so I would like to be able to add this branch as the synchronization branch...

As explained, I've made myself the owner of the branch, set it as synchronization branch, and set the original owning group back, and it worked. Thanks for the link to the bug, and I hope it will be corrected some day.
