unfortunately, we had a problem this week that made Rosetta unusable.
Most of those problems should be fixed already, and in a couple of days,
the PO upload feature will be working again.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Well, usually, the current translations at Rosetta should be sent to
upstream using the po export option because we don't send them
There are some upstream maintainers that are using Rosetta directly like
bazaar, pmount and synaptic, the maintainers get the translations
directly from Rosetta, so you don't need to care about it. If you have
any doubt, please ask upstream if you need to send or not directly the
For Ubuntu, we are going to import soon all packages soon and we will
get the translations automatically inside Ubuntu so you translate and we
will care about its Ubuntu integration. If you want your translations
are reused upstream you still will need to send them directly.
We are looking into a way to do this automatically in the future, but
it's a non trivial task so we don't have a concrete date for it.
P.S.: Please, send any other Rosetta doubt or bug report you could have
to the rosetta's mailing list at rosetta-users at lists.ubuntu.com
