I'm trying to clarify for myself (and then post in the wiki) some
things about the flow...
== Tickets & POs ==
According to the current instructions in the wiki, once we a PO
translation is done it should be 'posted' as a ticket in
In the case where two or more POs are done: should each one have
their ticket? Or use only one ticket and attach both files?
If the answer is "one ticket per PO", what about multiple POs from
the *same* activity/component? (ie: etoys has some 60 POTs)
== Ticket parameters ==
Again, according to the wiki, PO tickets go into the
'localization' component. Wouldn't it make more sense to attach
them to the component itself? (ie: uploading "Chat.master.es.po"
would be set to the 'Chat activity' component?)
If not, how do we ensure that po-loaded-tickets actually make it
back to the activity/component? Do developers track them and sift
through whatever formats (ie: po.zip) to pick their POs?
Any ideas on how to make l10n clear for all parties involved would
definitely help coordinating the efforts.
PS: Regarding the instructions in the wiki regarding the
parameters in the ticket, I expanded the instruction aiming for
some homogeneous across translators, but the initial
'localization' component was there since the beginning.
Don't Panic! The Answer is 42
