Well, Jeroen's suggestion actually implies removing the "is_imported"
flag. We are still trying to fight it over.

This actually happens automatically when there is a link between a
productseries and a sourcepackage.
However, what you seem to be asking is how is the initial import set up
at all: at the moment, whoever registers a project will have to do that.
As we discussed in the previous thread, there are a few lacking
permissions to be able to fix things up. That step is our next step and
is basically what the following blueprint is all about:

I agree: that's particularly https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/bugs/536644
However, assumption under which we are working here is that the upstream
translations are already set-up, and that there is a link between Ubuntu
source packages and product series (with translations). Thus automatic
import of such upstream translations should be assumed if upstream has
The way I want to expand on the above blueprint is to figure out good
places to integrate existing "link to package" functionality inside
translations pages: people should not be stopped from doing what they
wanted while they are helping set these up.
