Re: Minor changes to handling of upstream translations


Hi Yaron,

Also, this is something that is of a bigger relevance for the
ubuntu-translators list imo.  At the moment, nothing is really changing
for Ubuntu translations.

We will not be changing our synchronization rules as such.  It's just
that we will be getting "immediate" upstream imports, as if a new Ubuntu
package is coming with every commit to the upstream branch.

If your KDE translations are really better in Launchpad, I urge you to
try to submit them upstream as well (I assume you have tried already,
but still, try again! :).  We are building tools to make this as easy as

So, since we won't be changing the precedence rules for translations,
you should do just like you do today: revert all the GNOME translations
to "upstream" translations (currently marked "packaged" in the UI), and
keep diverged KDE translations.
