[Bug 292473] Re: KDE4 in Intrepid lacks translations for messages with context or plural forms

Launchpad issues have been fixed yesterday (and they affected "only" 113
templates, which is not too bad considering the total number of KDE4
templates). This is partly the problem of Launchpad translations, which
I filed as bug 294198.

We also found an issue with language pack building in Ubuntu (eg.
kturtle was not affected by Launchpad issues at all, it's just that PO
files were processed on the build machine which had a really old gettext
which ignored all msgctxt entries).

So, the next step is for us to roll out a new language pack. We'll be
doing that tomorrow after we also copy new translations done only in
Hardy to Intrepid (see https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-
translators/2008-November/001911.html for details). Once we roll the
language pack out (basic reason is to fix KDE4 issues), please help us
test it.

As far as your other concerns go, part of the problem is that Ubuntu
lacks a dedicated translations coordinator (or a team). This is being
actively worked on (Canonical is hiring a new person to take that job
full time), and I am sure this will make huge impact on how Ubuntu
translations work and appear.
