Re: [Elementary-translators] Midori has no translatable strings on Launchpad.


Eduard, please be constructive, even if you're personally frustrated.
There has been nobody actively looking into the translation setup for
months and your personal dislike of Transifex is not representative of it.
0 people working + n people complaning = infinite sadness

Somebody has to go and find out:
    Can Launchpad be made to merge translations into the Midori repository?
    Would Launchpad have to replace Transifex or could they co-exist?
    Do we have adequate translation teams in Launchpad? I've heard a ton
of complaints in the past, in particular with Dutch and German
translation teams in Launchpad.

Honestly I've got my hands full with other work and it's not like we had
no translations at all.
