This is a question I've asked shortly after the release of almost every
single beta release since Red Hat 6.0 ;)
It usually goes unanswered but the translations have always made it
relativly untested into the final product.
I also have problems like that, or I have committed changes for 3 files
yesterday, but the changes do not show up in the stats, and I get email
that I have not committed anything and the files will be released.
I reported it to red Hat, and they say that it is fixed, but then it
happened again yesterday. When I committed to the cvs it reported
everything fine and dandy.
Another problem I have is that I have an error that I would like to
correct in a fully translated file, but there is no way to take it, and
I cannot committ, I dont have the privileges.
I do have my reservations about the new translation system. I can see
that it can prevent some double translation, but in my experience that
is a very minor problem, and the extra burden on translators, to go
to a web interface and take/check out files individually, and the errors
that are likely to happen, like the ones I described above, and possibly
others may well overweight the bonus of avoiding double translations.
