aquariusSo. Translations. Having now put a thing up for translation in Launchpad for the first time (watch as I embrace the idea that some people don't speak English! this is a big step!), I have a couple of questions.08:04
aquariusFirst: someone's very helpfully proposed some German translations. But they all need review, it seems.08:04
aquariusHow's this meant to work? I mean... I have no idea whether they're correct or not; I don't speak good enough German to know. Is the "review" stage so that I can confirm that someone hasn't proposed a "translation" with all the words set to "Viagra"?08:05
wgrantaquarius: https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/YourProject/PermissionPolicies08:28
aquariuswgrant, yup; I read that and set the policy to "open"08:29
wgrantaquarius: Hm, a new translation shouldn't have required review then, unless the translator specifically said it did.08:29
aquariusah, the translator may have explicitly ticked the "this translation requires review" box for each of them?08:30
wgrantThat seems mostly likely.08:30
aquariusOK; I thought it was something I'd done wrong. Cheers; I'll go through and accept them, then.08:31
wgrantIt's possible something is misconfigured, but I can't think what would cause that.08:31
aquariusOK. I can also have LP export my translations to a branch. Can I have that "destination" branch be trunk? So the translated .po files are automatically put in the trunk?08:33
aquariusor does it need to be a different branch and then I have to regularly merge from that different branch into trunk to get updated translations?08:34
wgrantExporting directly to trunk shouldn't be a problem nowadays.08:35
aquariusOK, set to export translations back to the trunk. Thank you, wgrant08:44
cjwatsonaquarius: review is *normally* the job of translation groups, I believe, since a maintainer can't be expected to know more than a few languages09:45
cjwatsonhttps://help.launchpad.net/Translations/YourProject/ChoosingAGroup "Translation groups are a convenient way to delegate responsibility for reviewing translations"09:45
wgrantRight, but normally translations won't be held for review unless a corresponding translation group exists and the policy isn't Open.09:51
cjwatsonIndeed, but it's still surely better for a translation group to review translations than for aquarius to do it, even with an Open policy.09:56
cjwatsonwifitransfer has a translation group set.09:56
cjwatsonaquarius can't likely provide meaningful review in most cases (nobody can do so for more than a few languages).09:57
wgrantAh, if there are indeed translation groups set up, indeed.09:57
aquariusI made wifitransfer part of the Launchpad Translations group, as LP suggested. And a second translation has come in and that one doesn't seem to need review, so I suspect that wgrant was right and the German translator explicitly ticked the "this needs review" box11:40
aquariusso I did a review, which consisted of me basically agreeing to all of it and remembering that "Datei" is the German word for "files" :)11:40
svijaquarius: wrong, "Datei" is singular, "files" is plural. ;)11:50
* aquarius waves hands11:52
cjwatsonaquarius: Right, what I'm saying is that normally the review would (at some point) be performed by https://launchpad.net/~lp-l10n-de11:52
aquariusoh! really?11:52
aquariusI should have waited, then. Gotcha11:52
aquariusoops :)11:53
cjwatson(I think)11:53
cjwatsonBecause they can actually do a language-specific review11:53
aquariusRight. From now on I shall wait, then! That's what I get for being impatient, I suppose11:53
cjwatsonI may have the URL wrong, but that's how I understand the process11:54
rockhazardHey, folks!  I'm trying to use Python3 w/ Pillow to filter out images in a list with aspect ratio of 1.6.  This code seems to give me arbitrary results.  I want the final list to include only images that have 1.6 aspect ratio.  Please help! https://bpaste.net/show/e501a0941b9d13:29
cjwatsonrockhazard: We're probably not experts in image processing here.  Any particular reason you picked #launchpad?13:29
rockhazardOOOPS!  Sorry.  I have multiple channels open.  /slinks away13:30
cjwatsonFair enough :)13:30

CarlFKwhere do I specify release?  (and it is a simple python script, so all/any would be great)17:33
tewardCarlFK: changelog17:38
tewardedit 'unstable' to be the target Ubuntu release for the PPA, and modify the changelog version string if you want to put the same version for different releases17:38
teward(i.e. VERSION-1~14.04.0 for trusty, VERSION-1~15.04.0 for vivid, etc.)17:39
tewardand you only need to revise the latest changelog entry17:39
CarlFKteward: thanks17:53

xnoxcan recipes use git repositories for package building?19:32
xnoxi guess that all of that stuff depends on bzr-bd and well bzr...19:32
xnoxwhat should I do instead?19:32
dobeyxnox: i think there are plans to make it possible, but it doesn't work yet19:37
CarlFKCan't exec "pyversions": No such file or directory at /usr/share/perl5/Debian/Debhelper/Buildsystem/python_distutils.pm line 120.20:14
CarlFKdpkg-buildpackage ran ok locally. guessing I need something in Build-Depends ?20:15
dobeyCarlFK: yes. try using pbuilder or sbuild locally to debug20:16
CarlFKdobey: um... pbuilder --what?20:22
dobeyCarlFK: i use pbuilder-dist; but ln -s /usr/bin/pbuilder-dist pbuilder-trusty && ./pbuilder-trusty create && ./pbuilder-trusty foo.dsc20:24
dobeyCarlFK: launchpad uses sbuild though, and it will give you closer results to what launchpad gives you20:24
