I wonder why nobody has not complained yet about the hard-coded Churro
Up to now there are references to ddtp.debian.net in the DDTP/DDTSS code
definitely three, perhaps up to five side effects:
* Descriptions with prior translations such as (1) list
"# other Descriptions of the syslinux package with a translation in de:"
with references to ddtp.debian.net.
* In (1) the "information about previous translation" form is empty.
* The mail interface sends responses with links to ddtp.debian.net.
There are two more issues that might by related, but are less obvious:
* The translation statistics at (2) pretend that at present there are no
* The generation of the Translation-xx files (eg at (3)) seems to be
with regard to retranslations. Commits via DDTSS/mail propagate to
next day's Translation-xx, unchanged descriptions for new package
versions do not. One example: tzdata. For some reason one gets an
up to date (German) translation in the package search (4) and the
DDTP database (5), but »grep 'Package: tzdata' Translation-de« on
my local copy of Translation-de fails.
5: http://ddtp.kleptog.org/ddt.cgi?desc_id=33867 (tzdata)
