It is already possible to download them.


Mass-upload is possible as well.

I agree that publishing easy mass download scripts specially targeted to openSUSE server would be useful.

There is an API:

(Well, we actually have 2.3 installed. I want to update to 2.4 + feature patches once it will be packaged. The version that will be installed will appear in M17N repo in OBS. Currently it is in home:Nijel:weblate.)

Well, a small subset of packages with a low frequency of updates was intended as testcase. Once Weblate will be updated to version 2.4 and migrated to production servers, we planned official announce and officially start of beta testing.

But people discovered the test server even earlier than I deleted files in LCN, probably in the scout bug, libgnomesu (with translation work-flow broken in LCN SVN trunk for > 5 years) or eiciel (which is not an openSUSE project, but most translations were done in Novell), and started to edit usin Weblate. First conflict appeared. I did not want to cause more conflicts, so I decided to delete files for test projects in LCN SVN.

Migration of Release Notes (untranslatable for Leap until that migration) made our experiments visible earlier that we planned.

No more translations migration will be done now.

Migration of all packages would need a discussion with larger audience.

I even think that several pot/po files in LCN SVN are just dead and unmaintained for years, and will need to merge, upstream or drop.

As you mentioned, the LCN SVN process is not automated. Obsoleting of packages is not automated as well, and pot files tend to stay forever.
