Description Luca Ferretti 2010-12-05 05:44:58 UTC
Could be good start providing people a way to translate this module, in order to have a great experience with GNOME 3.0 :)

The best vendor-independent solution seems transifex.net, that's yet hosting translations for other fd.o modules (shared-mime-info, avahi...)
Comment 1 Luca Ferretti 2010-12-05 05:46:29 UTC
hmmm... it seems here is a page, http://www.transifex.net/projects/p/accountsservice/

Is it used?
Comment 2 Mario Blättermann 2011-02-06 04:43:24 UTC
The Transifex page seems to be unused. Anyway, yesterday I sent a request for creating a new translation team for German. Some hours later I got a message "team request denied" without any further comments. Then I saw in the project history, that all such requests for other languages (Italian, Swedish, Hebrew...) were denied for unknown reasons. What's the common way to submit translations, actually? The "accountsservice" module is now part of the "External dependencies" release set in GNOME, that means it is a dependency for the GNOME core parts, like gstreamer and NetworkManager, too. Any further explanations are really welcome.

There is now a newly born group on transifex for fd.o stuff, I hope accountservice will join it ASAP.

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2011-03-17 11:34:11 UTC
totally agree.  the current situation where translators attach po files to bugs is highly suboptimal for everyone.

okay freedesktop.org group has access to it now.
