Subject: news, next tasks...
First some statistics (17.11.2001):
- the ddtp supports 14 languages
- the ddts has 7403 uniq up-to-day descriptions in its db
- de, fr, it, ja and pt_BR have translated >10% of all descriptions
- da and the previous have translated all required, important, standard and task packages
- the BTS works. Now we have 226 bug reports and only <50 are still open
I have some news:
- The server doesn't send notification to all maintainers. I stop this
and we have now a 'opt-in'. The server have in his opt-in database
- I and some others find some bugs and we have fix this bugs...
- We get a CVS and a own debian domain (see also bad news...)
- Some weeks ago, we discuss the priority system. Now I code this and
now this system work:
- all descriptions get the priority '5'
- all descriptions from the sid/main/binary-i386 Packages file get a
priority of '20' and
- if the name start with 'lib' deducts 2 from the priority with
- if the name end with "-doc" deducts 1 from the priority with
- if the name end with "-dev" deducts 6 from the priority with
- add some priority points if the package has some priority:
- if the package has a Task tag, add 2 points
- change the priority points if the package is in some section:
- add some points, if the package description is already (in one
or more languages) translated:
The server mix all untranslated descriptions and send the
descriptions with a larger priority to the translator.
- Nicolas Boulenguez make some comments on a review system. Now we have
code something and some french boys test the system. Nicolas will
write some guide and after the test phase he will announce this all
in detail. Now only some basics:
- A reviewer request one or some translated descriptions from the
- He make the review and send it back to the server.
If he change the translation, the server send a bug report to the
translator. If he don't change anything, the server mark the
translation as reviewed by him.
- If the translator change the description, the server send this new
translation to all reviewer and ask for a new review.
- If N reviewer send the translation unchanged to the server, the
review process is finished. (N is 3 by default)
Thanks to Nicolas for this very nice system.
Maybe send a 'noguide STATUS fr' to the server...
- We don't use our own domain and the CVS...
- Some new languages have only some translators. We must find some
- the german graph is flattening (?spelling?)
- We have some old bug reports (50 and more days old) and we have some
not resend descriptions with changed english description. Some
Next tasks (unsort):
- searchable package descriptions (ala packages.debian.org) with
- move all source to CVS and use the CVS for the guides, NEWS, etc.
- make 'new' (or better real) web pages
- move all to ddtp.debian.org and XXX@ddtp.debian.org
- start with a CGI-Interface
- start review process
- add some other material for translation (like
/usr/share/tasksel/debian-tasks.desc, maybe debconf templates)
If you have comments etc. to some points, write.
