2 million is a lot of strings - no wonder no release is ever completed!

Subject: Translations with bad formatting strings now disabled

Hi all,

This is about the msgids that were used as format strings, where some of 
the msgstrs had incompatible formatting directives, e.g. translating 
"file not found" as "%s not found."

We've just completed a full gettext check of all active Ubuntu releases. 
  Any messages that failed gettext's format-string checks were disabled. 
  In cases where the problem was only in a Launchpad-specific 
translation, we've reverted to the upstream translations.

For Hardy, 1,780 messages were disabled and 239 ones from upstream 
re-enabled.  In 26 cases the upstream message was different but also 
failed the check.

For Intrepid, 1,520 messages were disabled and 376 ones from upstream 
re-enabled.  In 30 cases the upstream message was different but also 
failed the check.

For Jaunty, 1,506 messages were disabled and 299 ones from upstream 
enabled.  In 26 cases the upstream message was different but also failed 
the check.

The number of messages checked was about 2 million per Ubuntu release. 
These were the currently selected messages with the c-format flag (or 
equivalent for another language) enabled.


Jeroen
