I was also talking about this mainly. I used to fix some of the
outdated KDE upstream translations problems by uploading a few
translations manually when it was still possible to upload with the
"published by upstream" method or what was it called. This did it at
the time and then if there were LP specific changes, they were shown
as "changed in Launchpad".

Nowadays that method is not possible, but I wonder if after the
numerous changes in Rosetta and various numerous attempts over the
years to fix the translations have left some more or less hidden bits
set in the translations that prevent correctly importing actual
up-to-date upstream translations that are in the tarballs from
upstream? Just a guess.
