Consider adding a deja-dup module
Hello! I'm the maintainer of deja-dup, a backup program under the World namespace.
It's currently still translated in Launchpad, from when it was completely hosted there (we're half and half now). But I'm interested in switching to Damned Lies, if you folks will have me.
I have a few questions about such a transition:
- What info / metadata would you need from me?
- Am I right that I would no longer need to put the pot file in git? That it gets generated automatically by Damned Lies?
- Who do I need to give repo access to? Grant the
Developerrole to the
- What controls which repo branches show up? Is it any protected branch or based off the name? (e.g.
- How is license/copyright info handled? There are some comment headers in our po files that mark the copyright & license per the REUSE spec, and I assume those wouldn't get stripped by any of Damned Lies' processing?
- Is https://wiki.gnome.org/TranslationProject the best place to point new / existing translators?
(Are there docs that have these answers for maintainers? The MaintainersCorner wiki page feels a bit out of date and doesn't really address these kind of minutia. Nor did the about page on i10n.gnome.org.)
- I have a goofy symlink setup now for help po files, since Launchpad and meson expect them in different places. I'm not sure where Damned Lies would look for them (help/LL/LL.po or help/LL.po), but it may choke on that until I rearrange them as it expects.
