Thanks for pointing this out, Alick. I will need to update the
files with the translations made over the last month on Transifex. Due
to logistical issues at my end, the files currently on Zanata are one
month old. Updating them should, if I understand correctly, merely
entail pulling the translation files from Transifex and pushing them to
Before I do that though, I will need to disable submissions to the two
guides on Transifex. As per Dimitri's explanation in , I should be
able to do so at  and at the equivalent URL for every file.
However, I'm forbidden from accessing that URL. Might I need to be the
owner of the project to disable submissions? Can anyone give me any
advice on this?
I think so. Since I'm one of the current owners of install guide, I'm
editing the resources to mark them not accepting translation. It might
take some time because I can only edit them one by one. Can all the
owner/maintainers do the job simultaneously? Or someone can come up with
a smart script? Or should we just pull the current translations soon,
and then delete the project on transifex?
In the meantime, could all translators please refrain from working
the Installation Guide and Installation Quick Start Guide in Zanata so
that when I upload the updated files, your work isn't overwritten.
Might need to mark them as 'not accepting translations' on Zanata too
for the moment?
As for why these guides have shifted to Zanata, there are a couple of
1) Transifex can't handle the long filenames that the sheer size of the
Install Guide necessitates, so we have to maintain some kind of mapping
between the filename and the Transifex module names. This requires a
massive amount of manual handling.
2) Pushing and pulling the 800 small files that comprise the Install
Guide across the 20+ languages that we have partial translations for is
prohibitive as the connection keeps failing.
Thanks for the explanation. It is clear to me now :)
