March 05 <00:35:19 * glezos_afk is now known as glezos
March 05 <00:35:55 <couf> <meeting>
March 05 <00:36:06 <couf> so who's here?
March 05 <00:36:20 <glezos> Dimitris Glezos
March 05 <00:36:29 <couf> Bart Couvreur
March 05 <00:36:32 <runa_b> Runa Bhattacharjee
March 05 <00:37:07 * MrTom (n=mrtom@fedora/MrTom) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <00:37:14 <MrTom> hi, ThomasCanniot
March 05 <00:37:45 <couf> meeting topics: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/Meetings
March 05 <00:38:06 <couf> anyone want to chair / summarize?
March 05 <00:38:54 * glezos could summarize
March 05 <00:39:24 * couf thanks glezos
March 05 <00:40:08 <couf> so I'll spearhead this one then
March 05 <00:40:42 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - new members
March 05 <00:40:54 <couf> no new memebers here at the moment, this could go really quick
March 05 <00:41:23 <couf> just wanted to know if we've seen a huge amout of newcomers since the
March 05 <00:42:19 <glezos> couf: no huge amount
March 05 <00:42:37 <glezos> however, the latest feedback I got from the RH i18n team was that elvis
had around 300-400 <active users
March 05 <00:42:39 * tombolinux (n=tombo@fedora/tombo) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <00:43:20 <glezos> and currently cvsl10n has 280 <people, so I think the news are not bad.
Could be better though.
March 05 <00:43:40 <couf> right
March 05 <00:44:07 <couf> have all the @rh internal translators joined us yet, or are they working
on a different level?
March 05 <00:45:00 <glezos> runa_b:?
March 05 <00:45:09 <runa_b> couf: most of them are working via transifex
March 05 <00:45:37 <couf> great :-)
March 05 <00:45:38 <runa_b> couf: it would be best to float a mail on the mailing list to check the
actual status as the teams are based at various locations
March 05 <00:46:22 <glezos> runa_b: would you like to handle it?
March 05 <00:46:35 <runa_b> glezos: sure.. :)
March 05 <00:47:10 <runa_b> couf: your query was to check if transifex is being used by all?
March 05 <00:47:46 <couf> runa_b: well yeah, if they've changed to the new system, if they all
worked on elvis until recently
March 05 <00:47:54 <couf> so you've actually answered that
March 05 <00:48:14 <runa_b> ahh ok
March 05 <00:49:03 <couf> lets just keep the "we've got the new system up, join here" in the news
for a little bit longer, post-string freeze would be a good moment to send a reminder out
March 05 <00:49:56 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - previous meeting updates
March 05 <00:50:18 <couf> previous meeting was:
March 05 <00:50:37 <couf> any updates on the action items?
March 05 <00:51:18 * glezos sent the email for a new meeting time, no replies
March 05 <00:51:20 * stickster has quit (Read error: 110 <(Connection timed out))
March 05 <00:51:28 <MrTom> !
March 05 <00:51:43 <couf> go ahead MrTom, speak freely
March 05 <00:52:18 <MrTom> there is actually a new item to add : which is my work on the ergonomics
of transifex, that i we try to handle by the end of this week, as I am in holiday till the end of
the month :)
March 05 <00:52:52 <couf> awesome
March 05 <00:53:32 <MrTom> this should not be a whole revamp of transifex, but a "move this button
there" to make it more consistent
March 05 <00:54:19 <glezos> I like Tom's ideas in this area, and they seem easy fixes as long as
we've got a concrete list of "this and this needs these changes"
March 05 <00:54:37 <MrTom> you'll have
March 05 <00:54:41 <couf> +1
March 05 <00:54:42 * glezos will jump right in once we have those
March 05 <00:55:20 <MrTom> :)
March 05 <00:55:23 <couf> which ties in neetly too ...
March 05 <00:55:29 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - FOSDEM update
March 05 <00:55:41 <glezos> To follow up with other action items, no new modules have been added
March 05 <00:56:07 <glezos> I did some work to make sure every module works, and AFAIK every module
that doesn't has a bug report open to their maintainer.
March 05 <00:56:36 <couf> glezos++
March 05 <00:56:59 <couf> so next was a fosdem update (summary:
March 05 <00:57:07 <glezos> runa_b: any news from the UI testcase front?
March 05 <00:57:29 <runa_b> glezos: nope.. i was going to mention it once we finish the agenda items
March 05 <00:57:30 <couf> ow missed that, sorry :-/
March 05 <00:57:49 <glezos> ok
March 05 <00:57:49 * stickster_ (n=pfrields(a)ip72-209-237-99.dc.dc.cox.net) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <00:59:39 <couf> fosdem meeting updates: anything? or comments/suggestions?
March 05 <01:00:43 <MrTom> not for me
March 05 <01:00:59 <glezos> spevack collected all blog posts about it at
March 05 <01:02:44 <couf> let's just wait for comments on the mailinglist
March 05 <01:03:06 * ln- (i=lauri(a)vanha.ksenos.fi) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:03:12 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - Dev updates
March 05 <01:03:32 * runa_b had a question about the FOSDEM meeting notes
March 05 <01:03:42 <couf> runa_b: go ahead
March 05 <01:04:18 <runa_b> couf: "Same language can be written in a slightly different way
depeneding on the country (de_DE vs de_CH)" => What is the reference for this comment?
March 05 <01:04:51 <runa_b> There are already quite a few language groups with Country-based
differences...pt, pt_BR, bn, bn_IN
March 05 <01:05:04 <couf> ah, some languages are spoken the same, but written differently
March 05 <01:05:28 <couf> right, the problem here was that we don't really have a decent point of
view on this
March 05 <01:06:31 <couf> so the DE-maintainer (swiss) choose to write everything with a double ss,
which would be wrong in real german (because they use this special beta-type charachter)
March 05 <01:06:51 <couf> it was more of a concern, but imo it's inevitable
March 05 <01:07:21 <runa_b> couf: ahh ok
March 05 <01:07:41 <runa_b> I'd say it would really depend on the people speaking/writing the language
March 05 <01:08:03 <couf> +1
March 05 <01:08:28 <couf> we just need to back up the people making thoose choices
March 05 <01:08:47 <runa_b> right
March 05 <01:08:53 <glezos> having some guidelines, though, would be helpful
March 05 <01:09:04 * pygi (n=mario(a)18.104.22.168) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:09:05 <runa_b> how does gnome does it?
March 05 <01:09:21 <runa_b> iirc..they have atleast 15 <Spanish locales listed
March 05 <01:10:29 <glezos> I guess a Q on gnome-i18n-list could get some answers.
March 05 <01:10:43 <runa_b> hmm... ok.
March 05 <01:11:14 <runa_b> perhaps we could take it to the mailing list, might require detailed
March 05 <01:11:25 <runa_b> from other projects and language groups
March 05 <01:11:41 <runa_b> there is also the issue about same languages using different scripts
March 05 <01:12:28 <glezos> This sounds like an issue that affects particular languages
March 05 <01:12:37 <glezos> so people from those teams could take a stab at it
March 05 <01:13:09 * bpepple_ (n=bpepple(a)adsl-75-60-198-173.dsl.wotnoh.sbcglobal.net) has joined
March 05 <01:13:39 <couf> so let's take thuis guideline: choose whatever seems the most correct
thing if in that certain situation, maybe do a small announcement on both the trans-list and also
the <lang>-trans list
March 05 <01:13:58 <couf> and from that point on, we'll keep it as it is, untill a majority wants to
March 05 <01:14:38 <glezos> Maybe we should discuss this on list with more people involved in the
March 05 <01:14:51 <runa_b> +1
March 05 <01:15:07 <couf> sure
March 05 <01:15:26 * stickster_ has quit (Connection timed out)
March 05 <01:16:17 <glezos> Should we move on? (clock is ticking:)
March 05 <01:16:22 <couf> indeed
March 05 <01:16:23 * gregdek (n=gdk@nat/redhat/x-5ecf35989fba3a52) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:16:26 <couf> dev updates?
March 05 <01:16:56 * bpepple_ is now known as bpepple|lt
March 05 <01:17:22 <glezos> Not much from me ($dayjob too busy), besides making sure all modules
work and the rest have bug reports opened
March 05 <01:18:21 <couf> okay, moving on
March 05 <01:18:32 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - /cvs/elvis
March 05 <01:18:34 <glezos> asgeirf_ is working on fixing some DL bugs, I don't of any public push yet
March 05 <01:19:00 <glezos> don't *know*
March 05 <01:19:14 <glezos> What I do know is that he's a bit frustrated with it. :-)
March 05 <01:19:33 <couf> well you know, it's DL :-)
March 05 <01:19:47 <couf> why do you think it's Damned
March 05 <01:19:50 <glezos> It's a good software, but designed in a different way than what we'd like
March 05 <01:20:37 * wolfy (n=lonewolf@fedora/wolfy) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:21:20 <couf> glezos: you've had a chat about /cvs/elvis with petreu, need for any
March 05 <01:21:34 <glezos> oh, yeah, I'd like your feedback on that
March 05 <01:21:45 <glezos> currently cvsl10n has access to /cvs/docs/.*/po/*
March 05 <01:22:01 <glezos> so petreu was wondering if we could have that for /cvs/elvis as well
March 05 <01:22:29 <glezos> The reason is to have command-line access to specspo, which is a large
March 05 <01:23:00 <runa_b> glezos: is this in context to the permission error that petreu was
talking about earlier in the evening?
March 05 <01:23:07 <glezos> runa_b: yes
March 05 <01:23:15 * wolfy (n=lonewolf@fedora/wolfy) has left #fedora-meeting ("If swimming is so
good for your figure, how do you explain whales?")
March 05 <01:23:16 <runa_b> ahh ok.
March 05 <01:23:21 * bpepple|lt has quit (Client Quit)
March 05 <01:23:28 <couf> I've never tried to upload specspo through tx, does this time-out?
March 05 <01:23:30 * bpepple_ (n=bpepple(a)adsl-75-60-198-173.dsl.wotnoh.sbcglobal.net) has joined
March 05 <01:23:45 <glezos> Giving access to translators to specspo isn't easy, there's no way to do
it and I woudn't like putting more weight on infra
March 05 <01:24:13 * bpepple_ is now known as bpepple|lt
March 05 <01:24:24 <glezos> So a specific translators could request access to the 'cvsspecspo' group
if she'd like. We can't do it for all translators though.
March 05 <01:24:44 <glezos> However, when the CLI interface for Tx arrives, this will not only just
work for specspo, but for all modules.
March 05 <01:25:26 <couf> what's the eta (roughyl) for the CLI?
March 05 <01:25:41 <couf> if it's possible pre-trans freeze, I'd leave it as is
March 05 <01:26:25 <glezos> couf: With the current amount of time I can spend on developing
Transifex, 1 <month for a production solution
March 05 <01:26:47 * GeroldKa (n=GeroldKa@fedora/geroldka) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:28:46 <glezos> Unless the web interface isn't working at all, I'm leaning to keeping
March 05 <01:29:10 <glezos> s/to/towards/
March 05 <01:29:13 <couf> +1
March 05 <01:29:27 <glezos> From what I see, submissions do succeed.
March 05 <01:29:37 <glezos> If they don't, let me know immediately.
March 05 <01:30:08 <couf> okay, and if they really want to do cvs: join cvsspecspo
March 05 <01:30:33 <glezos> right.
March 05 <01:30:46 <couf> okay, last topic
March 05 <01:30:57 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - Steering committee
March 05 <01:31:05 <couf> before AOB that is :-)
March 05 <01:31:17 <couf> http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-trans-list/2008-February/msg00071.html
March 05 <01:31:24 <couf> and all answers to it
March 05 <01:31:38 <runa_b> +1 <to the steering committee :)
March 05 <01:32:02 <runa_b> how is it formed if its an initial committee?
March 05 <01:32:15 <couf> officially the project is run by two leaders (RH-employees)
March 05 <01:32:57 <couf> +1 <to SCo too
March 05 <01:33:05 <couf> formation is pretty liberal
March 05 <01:34:03 <couf> I'd go with the FDSCo way of doing stuff: which would be start a
self-nomination period and have elections
March 05 <01:34:11 <glezos> +1
March 05 <01:34:17 <runa_b> +1
March 05 <01:34:31 * palosba (n=chatzill(a)fw2.js26.ba.netlab.sk) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:35:07 <couf> for more info on there way of working:
March 05 <01:35:24 <couf> and more importantly
March 05 <01:35:33 <glezos> I suggest to leave a couple more days in case someone raises any objection
March 05 <01:36:10 <glezos> And then to have an action plan on this. Eg. Copy/adapt pages from Docs,
propose some dates, request feedback, announce.
March 05 <01:36:34 <couf> +1
March 05 <01:36:42 <couf> I'll flesh this out on-list
March 05 <01:36:58 <couf> and lets see where it goes :-)
March 05 <01:38:04 <runa_b> +1 <to glezos
March 05 <01:38:24 <glezos> I am confident that enough people will nominate themselves for the board.
March 05 <01:38:40 <glezos> especially when we have the appropriate wiki pages ready.
March 05 <01:38:53 <couf> right
March 05 <01:38:57 * bpepple has quit (Connection timed out)
March 05 <01:40:33 <runa_b> couf: can i go ahead with the UI test cases topic?
March 05 <01:40:38 * JSchmitt (n=s4504kr(a)p54B107B0.dip0.t-ipconnect.de) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:40:43 <couf> sure
March 05 <01:40:50 <runa_b> couf: thanks
March 05 <01:40:52 <glezos> OK, we could continue this discussion on the list. Ask more people to
join the discussion, I think most of them are feeling shy, although they have tons of ideas to bring.
March 05 <01:41:39 <runa_b> Well the UI Testcases idea was to have a set of Testcases that would
help people review the important parts of the translated User interface
March 05 <01:42:08 <runa_b> Nothing could be done since the past meeting... no excuses..
March 05 <01:42:15 * GreyEagle (n=rob(a)22.214.171.124) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:42:26 <runa_b> I'd like to propose this idea on the mailing list tomorrow, if it sounds
March 05 <01:44:26 <runa_b> does it sound do-able?
March 05 <01:45:04 <glezos> runa_b: everything is doable given enough time. :
March 05 <01:45:05 * GreyEagle (n=rob(a)126.96.36.199) has left #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:45:05 <glezos> :)
March 05 <01:45:17 <couf> I'd propose it, and see what the list thinks about doability
March 05 <01:45:29 * couf has no idea what this is going to turn out to so :-)
March 05 <01:45:34 <glezos> runa_b: Any chance of getting together people from your office to flesh
out an initial draft?
March 05 <01:46:03 <runa_b> glezos: i could send a proposal to the mailing list and then check with
the QE team if they would be able to help out
March 05 <01:46:09 <glezos> You guys have a great team and locality, so a lot of good stuff could
March 05 <01:46:18 <runa_b> some of them are already on the FLP.. :)
March 05 <01:46:43 <glezos> Right.. I was thinking of a f2f brainstorming session or sth similar
March 05 <01:47:02 <runa_b> ahh ok...surely can check up on that
March 05 <01:47:43 <glezos> ok
March 05 <01:47:45 <glezos> great
March 05 <01:47:46 <couf> that would be awesome
March 05 <01:48:09 * couf has changed the topic to: FLP Meeting - fedora-board meeting at
#fedora-board-meeting and #fedora-board-public - AOB
March 05 <01:48:11 <runa_b> i guess there was a suggestin to align it with the page that vpv was
March 05 <01:49:15 <couf> right
March 05 <01:49:26 <couf> so anything else on this subject?
March 05 <01:49:36 <couf> or anything else on a different subject?
March 05 <01:50:36 <glezos> A quick note to say that the server timezone has been changed to UTC
March 05 <01:50:49 <glezos> so all dates appearing on the websites will now be UTC

March 05 <01:52:47 * couf closes meeting in 30
March 05 <01:52:54 <glezos> ah
March 05 <01:52:59 <glezos> I've remembered something
March 05 <01:53:06 <glezos> Fedora Weekly News
March 05 <01:53:09 * jcollie (n=jcollie(a)188.8.131.52) has joined #fedora-meeting
March 05 <01:53:14 <glezos> Why aren't we on them?
March 05 <01:53:49 <glezos> And what we could do to get on them?
March 05 <01:54:13 <couf> because we've got no beat writer :-/
March 05 <01:54:41 <glezos> (FWIW, the FWN team just needs someone to get together the week's most
important updates (if any) on a wiki page)
March 05 <01:54:54 <glezos> every Sunday
March 05 <01:55:37 <glezos> any ideas for my second Q?
March 05 <01:56:35 <mether glezos: send a request for help on every avenue you can find
March 05 <01:56:36 <couf> I'm willing to do it, but if someone wants to take it, go ahead
March 05 <01:57:25 <glezos> OK, I'll blog about it, couf can you do so as well?
March 05 <01:57:32 <mether glezos: usually getting covered in FWN will get more attention and more
contributors, so it is well worth the effort to spam
March 05 <01:57:37 <couf> yep, sure
March 05 <01:57:44 <glezos> k
March 05 <01:58:16 * couf restarts count at 30
March 05 <01:58:30 <glezos> couf: we could do it in alternate weeks if no contributor steps up
March 05 <01:58:57 <couf> glezos: yep
March 05 <01:59:06 <glezos> It's a pretty important medium, and as mether says, it will bring more
March 05 <01:59:12 <glezos> and attention.
March 05 <01:59:56 <mether just covering important announcements and discussions wont take more than
half an hour
March 05 <02:00:03 <glezos> Hoping someone energetic enough would like to contribute back to the FLP

Sinhala (si-LK) community will be conducting a translation hackerthon on
29th and 30th March 2008.
Appreciate your valuable ideas and major areas we should play around.
Hey, I am in charge of submitting ideas to improve translate.fp.org and
Transifex ergonomics. The fact is that webdevelopper are not
specialists in ergonomics and so am I. But I had a course this year in
the university about ergonomics on internet, so let's share this
experience to make translators lives better.
When you load translate.fp.org and we you go to transifex, the first
things that breaks the tool is that it is not translated yet. This
remains a problem for translators and for the website constituency.
When you are in transifex, the first things most of translators may
have to do is : login. Then the login area should not be at the bottom
of the menu bar, but on top of it, or on the top right handside corner.
Fedora is a big projet. Fedora has many web pages with a lot of
documentation and information on it. And inevitably, Fedora websites
suck into constituency : pick and choose three links from
translate.fp.org left menu. By chance :
* Join FLP
* Fedora Home (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/L10N/)
* Planet (http://planet.fedoraproject.org/)
And wow ! Four ways completely different to navigate. It sucks, really,
and it hurts. People have to learn four different ways to navigate and
four different ways to search for the information they want. This *is*
The welcome page of Transifex seems to need some improvements as well.
Its menu bar goes into contradictions : there are two "modules" links.
Great, these should link to the same page, as both links have the same
word (modules). But they don't. However, you can know the difference
between the two links when you move your mouse on them. The FLP Home >
modules should definetely be named "translatable modules list" and the
Submit (Tx) > modules should be name "Send your translation" or
"submittable modules". Naming a link is very difficult because one has
to sum up what someone may expect to see once he clicks on the link.
There are two lists modules in our case, then we should differentiate
them by the action people can do with these modules : get information
about them, or submit translation.
On this same welcome page, the link "Jump to the modules" is not
appropriate as well, because it does not help to know where the
translator will be directed to. Which module page is expected to be
loaded by the user ? Will he be redirected to the page to look at
module statistics or to the submit a module page ? It is the second
option, it should be named "Submit your translation".
Let's focus on https://translate.fedoraproject.org/submit/module/ now.
This is quite a long module list isn't it ? The web developer thought
the same and wanted to improve navigation for it. However, some points
are missing. First, the button to go to the second page is not well
positioned. It should be on the right side, not the left one. And there
should be the same button under the module list, on the right side.
The "Back to home" button is not appropriate. Which home is the user
going to be sent to as there are both "FLP Home" and "Fedora Home" in
the menu. So, where is "home"?
On the same page, under the module list, on the left side or on the
right side as well, there should be a "go to the top" button.
On the same page, the cursor changes when it rollover the column
"repository". What for ? If this does not bring new information, it
Is the information given by this "repository" column relevant for
translators ? It seems it is not the case, then it could be deleted. If
it is relevant for any kind of user (for the maintainer of transifex
for example), maybe it could only be displayed when he is looged in?
Which means to have a profiled website.
The links are not well formatted on the page. Downloading the pot file
is made trough different pattern than downloading a po file. Bug
#427155 explains this in details.
Let's now pick up a module from the list at
https://translate.fedoraproject.org/module/. Anaconda is a perfect
example. Let's focus on the language list. You can notice the list is
not sorted by alphabetically. It should be sorted alphabetically and
not from the statistics of the most translated language. This way, it
would be much easier to find the .po file of your language.
At the end of each branch list, there should be a "back to the top"
In the first part of the module statistics page, there should be a link
to submit a translation for this module, as there is a link to display
statistics when one is to submit a translation on each page module.
Let's now pick up the anaconda module from
https://translate.fedoraproject.org/submit/module/ There two icons on
the right side are should be just before the "Module cache" with a text
link to click on. Icons are not used as links in the website, there is
no reason this should change :)
At the bottom of the page, the "back to module" link is an issue
either, the same as in Issue #5. The link could be called "submit
I published it as well on my blog at :
We'll discuss it with Dimitris when he'll be back :)
I'll be mostly unavailable for the next couple of weeks. Because of
high load at my $dayjob, I will have very little time, if any, to
dedicate to Fedora.
In case you need me for something, please be patient during this
period, since a reply might take some time.
If something on our L10n toolchain seems to behave in a strange way to
you, please take a look at the L10n FAQ. If the issue is affecting
your productivity, the folks over at #fedora-admin might be able to
help, but please be gentle as their plate is always full.

Dim Glezos just activated the online documentation subtrees in my
system-config-* modules for Transifex, but I just learnt the hard
way ;-) that my translation toolchain doesn't quite work as I expected
and this needs some changes that I unfortunately won't get ready in time
until tomorrow (i.e. Beta freeze).
: system-config-date, -nfs, -samba, -services, -users
This means that until I fix my toolchain, you don't need to bother with
any files in these modules which live in the doc/ directory. I'll post
here on the list as soon as I've fixed this issue so that you can
translate them (if there's enough time in the schedule left for you to
Feel free to ask me questions (or name me names ;-), but do Cc me as I'm
not subscribed to the list.

There is an unplanned outage of Transifex starting at 2008-03-12 10:20
UTC, which could last a few hours.

Reason for Outage:
The Fedora Accounts System has been replaced yesterday by a
shiny new system. This update unexpectently caused Transifex
commits to fail. We're working to get it fixed as quickly as possible.
Please join #fedora-l10n in irc.freenode.net or respond to this email to
track the status of this outage.
