I would like to ask: what is the current status of the Weblate
improvements that should have been funded by TDF? It is almost one year
ago when we translators were asked to prioritize a list of possibilities
, however nothing has followed since then.
To put it into a broader picture: even if I understand that localization
is not a priority within TDF, it is frustrating to see that there is no
progress in the translation workflow during the time. I face to the same
infrastructure and translating software issues as years ago, not
speaking about ignored new opportunities or ideas (machine translation
is the best example of them). As fixing some parts of Weblate could help
a lot, I hoped that at least some improvements would come soon...
localization is definitely a priority at TDF, so apologies if a wrong
impression was created here. We are glad that with LibreOffice available
in so many languages, we as a community make it possible for many people
to use free and open source software. We are proud of and thankful for
all the localizers, and it is one of our priorities to enable people to
make good contributions and have a welcoming environment.
Indeed, we are more belated with the Weblate project than we have hoped.
The truth is, we were going through some demanding times the past months
which unfortunately delayed some of the projects as well, but the hope
is indeed that the overall situation will improve significantly in 2023.
Aologies that also Weblate was affected from some of the delays - it's
owed to the demanding situation we were dealing with. Localization is
one of the key things that makes our community an international one, and
it's important to us.
Before Christmas, we have worked with the Weblate people to finalize
deliverables and some contractual details and I expect last bits
clarified and work to start very soon now.
I used the opportunity to also talk about Weblate during today's team
call, given there are reports about issues again. Just to confirm, the
best way to report issues is the l10n list, alternatively Redmine. Now
that the Christmas break is over, more people should be following the
mailing list again, and we are currently looking into the problems. Some
of them seem to be not reliably reproducible from what I heard, which
make them harder to chase, but we are looking into things right now, as
we understand it's a growing issue.
Christian also mentioned the latest Weblate release promises performance
upgrades, and he will have a look in deploying that soon.
I hope that helps to answer the question. In summary, the past months
took their toll from everyone, and that unfortunately also delayed some
things, but we're all working hard to get back on track.
