FuzzyBot imports already fuzzied.

For the translations created by FuzzyBot that are created already fuzzied, the translation interface should be submitting them for our review, because they're fuzzied, but does not.

For example, on 9 May 2019, FuzzyBot inserted the following two translations, with summary "Importing a new version from external source":

Let's look at the first link, for example:


If you start editing the message directly from this page, it is definitely fuzzied:


But the edit interface does not show it in the list of "Outdated" strings. It is none of the six presented here:


The message appears in the list of "All" strings, as translated and not flagged as requiring any action whatsoever:


Worse still, if you open the message itself here through the translation interface, the software does not even show you that it is fuzzied. The whole !!FUZZY!! thing is totally hidden:


So, just to confirm again, if you go to edit the message directly from the edit interface, as follows (greyed out menu item):


you can confirm that the message is effectively fuzzied:


So, it has been there since 9 May needing review, but not to my knowledge.

Thanks for the report. I'll file task and see if I can mitigate this.

I have run script that fixes this for existing imports. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T237412 tracks how to prevent future cases of this. https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=wikipedia-library&language=pt&filter=fuzzy&action=translate contains a lot of fuzzy messages now.

Message group stats was not updated by the script, but they will hopefully "repair" itself over time.
