Transifex Update - New changes...

Just got mail from fedora Translation project about
transifex update and tried to update few files. It
changed quite lot and those are very helpful.
*) With Single Language Page, I can can download
file for my language (that is not big thing), and
Update from single page (That is Really big thing)

This is very helpful as for old method I have to
got different page to upload page.

What issue I felt is that after Upload Page moved
to "Module" page from Same page. I would like
stay on Language Page, so that download and upload
more file for different module.
Anyway this is big thing and hope to get this working
on gnome project soon...

Nazi Reply got...

my ssh key is updated. I replied back
to gnome admin regarding
key replacement time (which we can think to improve)
but Nazi reply back to me like:

"We're all just volunteers here, and we're doing as best as we can and
try to be as helpful as we can. Even for users who did not bother to
back up their own sensitive data."

* If they are volunteer, then "What AM I?"

* ya, I lost my key, my mistake, but Is it not Very Harsh and hard reply
even I was trying to help them to improve if possible.

It was not VERY unexpected as I know something about NEW Nazi group:-)

openSUSE to Fedora 10....

various time, I tried fedora and opensuse,
most of time I found opensuse installation quite
easy, but with Fedora 10, it changed (I felt)
Fedora 10 asked too less questions and work
more quickly. and for desktop, everything
worked well without any configuration,
even sound (which was not working in
openSUSE 11.1). Overall Fedora seems
faster to start, but shutdown is slower.
Finally working on Gnome, instead of
KDE. It seems faster and easy to use.
Hibernate has same issue (Keyboard
not working) in Fedora. I search for some bug, but
get no proper reponse about it.

Wrong bug for issue: Fedora Bug
Doubtd bug: Fedora bug 479504
New bug filed: Bug 490247 - Keyboard Not working

Project Resposne Time: ssh key replacement...

I lost my SSH key with hard disk failure.
now it is time to replace with various Projects.
I have following list and track time to replace key

Project ......... Report .......1st Response.........Replaced
Gnome ......... 11Mar ........yet not ............NO
Fedora*........ 11Mar ......11Mar......... Fixed (same day)
KDE ..............11Mar......11Mar......... Fixed ( hours)
Mozilla.......... 11Mar.........Yet Not ......... No

* Fedora has account page, where most easy to replace key (as a
translator, it is not useful to replace key)

so, KDE is quick (super fast) to update and response.

FYI: how to update ssh key in various Projects:

Gnome: send mail to accounts@gnome.org address with key, username. (last replacement took 5 days.)

KDE: New Bugzilla Page: KDE sysadmin request as Bug

Fedora: Login to Fedora Account page and
Edit detail->Upload new key.

Mozilla: File a bug to replace key like: Bug 378597 (took almost 1 month)

Update later when it all projects updated.

GCompris Translation - Bad foot-prints

I got mail from gnome mailing list regarding
"[Announce Release 8.4.9]". It included Punjabi
Translation, just would like to search what it is
actually. As it is part of gnome, so expecting
translation to check. It was transliteration only,
second file failed to pass 'msgfmt' check. Translation
was really bad and I hope to work with developer
to use proper svn translation from gnome.
But Again CDAC is moving its hard-core
'Govt' way. It is not just bad, but worse foot-print,
which their followers are following again and again...
