Solang: Transifex.net, Damned Lies, and the stalemate
A few weeks back Solang started using git.gnome.org for its main Git tree, got a module on bugzilla.gnome.org, and a website on projects.gnome.org. We also started using l10n.gnome.org for accepting translations alongwith transifex.net, which we were using before the move to GNOME infrastructure. This was mainly done to keep Solang aligned with the rest of GNOME as advised by some kind souls in #c++ on GIMPNet.
I really like the idea of transifex.net being a common platform for translating programs. However GNOME has a vibrant translation community centred around the gnome-i18n list, where new modules are advertised, new translation teams are announced and so on, and there is no such equivalent for transifex.net. So the moment I advertised Solang on the GNOME lists I got a bunch of new languages with a few hours. Such exuberance is not visible on transifex.net simply because I am unable to reach to the community surrounding it.
So if you are a language translator, I would like to invite you to translate Solang to your native language through transifex.net. Right now your contributions get emailed to me because Transifex has been disallowed from pushing to git.gnome.org.
