Only for debian-installer level 1 files. This is the only project where a two-way process is possible and where it is possible to commit from Pootle and have you work being used without any other action. > As far as I can tell the stats for Romanian are wrong. For D-I, they shouldn't. Other projects are more prospective things I try to keep running. The "debconf" or "po-debconf" projects is supposedly gathing all material for debconf templates l10n, assemble them in an SVN hosted on alioth and have Pootle hooked on this. This part works (it's using sync scripts I wrote and that are running daily on churro). However, there is no way to push the data back to packages. The is inherent to the distributed nature of packaging. I have a few long term ideas to be able to allow pulling l10n material from an online source during package builds but the tools still have to be written for this and the workflow needs refinement as Debian package builds should not *depend* on being online or not. > Also, some Romanian translators have expressed their interest in using > the Narro instance running at tradu.softwareliber.ro, especially > since it seems to have attracted quite some community of FLOSS > translators, including from Ubuntu. > > For this we would need a source for all po/pot files in Debian.

The published stats for po-debconf are built from that material. IIRC, from http://i18n.debian.net you should find your way to detailed explanations about this. As said above, I have a running cronjobs that push that material back to the debian-l10n SVN repository on alioth. This is working fairly well, but I monitor this quite loosely and this is anyway a kind of proof of concept. Of course, I'd very much welcome seeing more people jumping in this and proposiig evolutions to that framework.
