Re: Coocoo Curucú?

Hi all,

I initially added the curucu project to the set of apps/packages to
translate for the phone as it had some visible strings that were used for
remote scopes. That is also why I initially renamed it to "Remote scopes
server" in the translations dashboard [1].

At some point, the project grew to include a great number of strings from
dbpedia, which made it a bit more difficult to translate (it's hard to add
translator context to them) and biased the overall stats, the purpose of
which is to bring focus to the most essential strings to translate to have
a well localized UI.

After the feedback from translators, I've decided to take it out from the
list of phone packages to translate [1] for those reasons, in particular
for the bias that brings to the stats. In any case, it's still translatable
in Launchpad as usual [2], and we're discussing ways to make contributions
easier with the curucu developers.

Another thing that I've seen mentioned on the list is the fact that
ubuntu-calculator-app seems to be frozen at 7 strings to do, which is not
the case for most languages. I need to look in more detail into this, but
my hunch is that polib, which I use to read the stats from po files, is
getting a bit confused, something that I've already hit in the past. In any
case, remember that the stats dashboard is a project everyone can
contribute to [3], so if you've got python or Django skills and see a bug
or need improvements, feel free to dive into it!
