Hi all, 

Following our quest of getting Kubuntu translation templates in shape
and helping translators contribute back upstream, I've created a wiki
page [1] with a list of KDE templates for Karmic. I've used the data
from Arne's last list of templates to generate the table. Note: the
links on the KDE column point to a particular language code, since I
cannot point to a generic URL valid for all languages.

The main purpose is to get an overview of KDE translation templates in
Launchpad, but I thought it could be used to do the final sanity check
as well, so I added a column where I've put some notes for those
templates which might still not be quite right.

Here's the summary of what I've found out so far. I would appreciate any

= On Launchpad =

• I think the following templates could be disabled
        ∘ kde4libs/solid4
        ∘ kdeedu/keduca [2]
        ∘ kdeedu/kverbos [2]
        ∘ kdegames/kbackgammon [2]
        ∘ kdegames/kpoker [2]
        ∘ kdegames/ksirtet [2]
        ∘ kdegames/libksirtet [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kcoloredit [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kfax [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kgamma [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kiconedit [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kooka [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kpovmodeler [2]
        ∘ kdegraphics/kuickshow [2]
        ∘ kdemultimedia/kaudiocreator [2]
        ∘ kdemultimedia/kmid [2]
        ∘ kdenetwork/kfile-torrent [2]
        ∘ kdepim/kmobiletools
        ∘ kdepim/kmobiletools-at-engine
        ∘ kdepim/kode
        ∘ kdepim/korn
        ∘ kdepim/kres-featureplan [2]
        ∘ kdepim/kxforms
        ∘ kdepim/libkholidays [2]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/krunner-contacts [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/krunner-converterrunner [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/katesessions [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/krunner-spellcheckrunner [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/plasma-applet-bluemarble [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/plasma-applet-comic [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/plasma-applet-dict [3]
        ∘ kdeplasma-addons/plasma-applet-twitter [3]
        ∘ kdeutils/kregexpeditor

= Packaging? =

• The following templates might need to be added (source/template)
        ∘ kdeedu/marble_qt
        ∘ kdeedu/step_qt
        ∘ kde4libs/knotificationitem-1
        ∘ kde4libs/ktexteditor_plugins
        ∘ kde4libs/timezones4
        ∘ kde4libs/xml_mimetypes
= Other =

== Docs ==

The following source packages and corresponding templates I believe
should be disabled as well, but I'd like to double-check that

        • kdebase-runtime
        • kdebase-workspace

I cannot find their templates at
http://websvn.kde.org/tags/KDE/4.2.98/kde-l10n; only in trunk
(http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/l10n-kde4/ca/docmessages/) and not all of
them. I believe they are documentation files, but I'm not sure, since
they are stored under docmessages and there is also a docs folder in

== Desktop files ==

I could not find out where the .desktop files translations reside in
SVN, so all URL of the type
http://websvn.kde.org/tags/KDE/4.2.98/kde-l10n/ca/messages/kdelibs/desktop_kdelibs.po are currently broken in the wiki page.

== Extragear, etc ==

In the extragear section I've put everything I couldn't map to the KDE
modules. I still have to review those.


[1] https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Translations/Upstream/KDE/KdeKarmicModules
[2] I could not find any translations (po files) for those at, but there
are templates at no translations, but there is a template at
[3] I could not find the source packages anywhere
