Re: DDTSS system is up again, but it still has some big issues
I read that Churro is back up and indeed the DDTSS is up again.
There were some big probs, at least in the Italian page, that started
right before Churro went down the last time.
Those issues are still there. No description seems "fetch-able" in the
correct way. If you fetch a new description (using the link
http://ddtp.debian.net/ddtss/index.cgi/it/fetch) you get a message like
"Fetched ojs successfully" but when you are redirected to the translation
screen all you see is an error message.
Thus it's impossible to do any translation work.
The same thing happened with all the packages we tried to fetch (those in
"pending translation"), you can see the error page if you open any of the
relative translation screens
the import functions rely on complete descriptions in the packages.
This has been changed slightly before churro went down.
The workaround is to go to ddtp.debian.net/<$char>.html, determine
the last description number (e.g. 79539) and retrieve the description
