Subject Re: Pootle Data
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 14:02:16 GMT

I recently had a little time to look at the pootle data.  Here is what I 
have found out so far.  Please keep in mind that this is new for me and 
that my interpretations may be wrong.

For context I will start with a short description of the directory 
structure of the 80 GB of the backup disk:

In the top-level podirectory/ there is a sub-directory openoffice_org/ 
that probably is the translation data of  It contains 
sub-directories for most languages (more on the exact set below.)
The content of podirectory is available at [1].

Below the top-level backup/ there are two directories DEV_m103/ and 
DEV_94/ for two milestones.  Below these you can find directories like 
backconvert-110326/ that probably contain backups for certain dates 
(March 26 2011 in this example.  The most recent is 
DEV_m103/backconvert-110401 from April 1st of last year.

After comparing time stamps I now think that we can disregard the whole 
backup/ directory.  There are .po files under podirectory/ that are from 
later then April 1st.  Some files are from May.

I then tried to find out whether the pootle data are older or newer than 
the data in the extras/l10n module in our SVN repository.  The 
timestamps in the .sdf files are useless, our tools set them all to 
2002-02-02.  The file time stamps can not be used directly because of 
the differing directory structures.

Comparing the set of lanuages of the pootle server and that in 
extras/l10n/ was also inconclusive:
The set of languages that are present in both data sets is
af ar as ast bg bn bo bs ca cs cy da dz es et fa fr fur ga gd gl gu he 
hi hu  id is it ja jbo ka kab kn ko ku lt lv ml mr my nb nl nn nr nso ny 
oc om or pap pl ps pt ru sc si sk so sq ss st sv ta te th tn tr ts ug

Languages only in extras/l10n/ are:
be-BY br brx de dgo el eo eu fi hr kid kk km kok ks ky mai mk mn mni ne 
pa-IN ro rw sa-IN sat sd sh sl sr sw-TZ tg

Languages only on the pootle server are:
pyg son tk tlh

See [2] for a list of language ids. (tlh for example is klingon)

So, we probably have to merge both data sets and hope for the best.
Any information from people who know the localization process better is
