Moving translations for Waymarkedtrails to another github repo


I have spent the last year restructuring the code for Waymarkedtrails. The website part is moving into a separate repo:

I'd like to move the translation files to the new website repo. The new repo has a similar structure for the translations. The base directory for translations is: Each language has its own subdirectory with two files:

  • helppages.yaml is exactly the same as it was in the original repo.
  • messages.yaml replaces the old gettext translations. It is now also in yaml format with markdown content, i.e. exactly the same format as helppages.yaml. I have left the messages themselves intact where possible and converted the translations. I have also left the header with the translatewiki in place.

The qot/ and qqq/ languages remain in their previous functions as source and place for comments.

Is it possible to move the translation process over to the new repository like this? I have already given the user write access. If there is anything else I can do to help, let me know.

Hi Lonvia,

Thanks for reaching out. We should be able to move to using the new repository.

How often are the translation being migrated from to Is it easy to do? Basically, we'd not like to lose any translations that have been made.

That's good to hear. Thanks, Abijeet.

I have a script with which I can sync translations coming in to the old repo. It's fairly easy to do but it is still a manual process (with the usual implication that I have to remember to run in). The translations are up to date right now with the latest commit from Dec 13th.

Hi Lonvia,

We've migrated translatewiki to track the new repository.

Previously there was a symbolic link from "no" to "nb" to avoid imports from Waymarked Trails. Shall we remove it?

Awesome, thank you.

The links are no longer necessary. Language aliases are now handled in the code.

There was a commit this morning to django/locale/scn/LC_MESSAGES/django.po in the old repo which I haven't synced yet. Do you want me to do that manually or will it be in the next commit from your side?
