I also was under the impression that all translations based on the POT from PR2 were supposed to be meant for the RC. But, as I am defenitely no specialist, my knowledgelevel is far to low, I could be wrong.

 

I am mentioning for which branch the pot file is, you just have to read the text I wrote.  So I provide pot for both branch, it is up to you to know then for which branch you want to work with the pot file I propose.

 

I even generate again all the .po files for both develop and rc and then propose 2 distinct pull request, but they are not committed and in between you publish your nl.po file which gives conflicts so I close on of the PR.

The submitted translations will not appear on RC 6.2 until it's synced with the develop branch again. This happened last a few days ago so any translation submitted after that will not be updated immediately.

 

Yes but it is crazy to see in translation that they are new strings to translate in the RC branch that are not in the Develop branch, for po files generated nearly at the same time.

So I really wonder where new stuff are added... sounds like it depends on the developer some are adding new stuff directly in the RC branch other first in the develop one.

 

So if I generate a pot file for the develop we will still have untranslated strings in the RC after a merge due to this.

 

If I generate pot files both for develop and rc this seems to confuse translators too. :-)

 

So I come back to my suggestion to include in the build process the creation of the enigma2.pot (this should only be done once since it is common to all platform) and publish it to the github. So translators, just pickup the po file and the very latest enigma2.pot file from the github branch that they want and start working on it and then create a PR to send back the file to github.

 

When working on two branches this become a nightmare.

I think best online tool is https://weblate.org/en/ (opensource) with good integration with Github repository.

 

1) Using an online tool give you the opportunity to everyone to partecipe, maybe creating a team of translators for each language being coordinated by someone inside the team.

2) I think translators should do what they better know, translate (and not understand how to use github to commit they job)

3) What to translate should be offer to translators without post here the .po files or guess which branch use in the sources

 

I know that it's a big effort to have such a tool and developers are concentrated on fixing issues and developing new features for OpenPLi but having near 30 languages to translate should be a "plus" that increase the community of not speaking english users.

For what I know most of OpenPLi users are not native english and have menus in their local language is a good help and is really appreciated (this is the reason by I decided to support OpenPLi with translations, return back to the community a part of what i received from it).

There are a lot of things that all have to link together to make things happen properly.

 

We need to get our shit together when it comes to development, and do not use "develop" as a dumping ground, but use feature branches, develop there, and only merge with develop when the feature is finished. I don't have a problem reviewing a new feature when it comes to proper English, before it is merged. That would mean you only need to translate once, and it also means there is no need for "hot-fix" translations in rc, because there are no code changes needed in rc (apart from the occasional hotfix).

 

But is very difficult, in this open source project as much as any other open source project, to adapt and adhere to professional development methods, and get rid of the "hobby" mentality.

Completely agree with you!!!

Since OpnePLi is a big project things become complex and a more "professional method" is required to help every single component of the puzzle with benefits for all.

Hi,

 

I have just generated both develop and rc branch whole po files here:

 

https://github.com/pr2git/enigma2

 

In it you will also find the latest:  enigma2.pot file.

 

@Dev,

 

I hope that you can pick-up the latest and up-to-date french translation from there and push then into your repo.
