Build Identifier: CVS access for Occitan translations
I'm responsible of Occitan translations for GNOME and I'd also like to translate (or make translate) Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird.
I'm trying to understand how to do this. Meanwhile, could I have a CVS account?
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 251895 [details]
SSH key for Occitan CVS account
Need a voucher as well as the hacking form filled out and returned (www.mozilla.org/hacking/form.html).
If I understand well, I have to mail the filled form, just for a translation CVS access :o(
Sorry to seem so dumb but I cannot find a single page with all the information for localizing Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird :o(
Yannig: I need an existing CVS user to vouch for you. Axel will also have to review this request before I can create your CVS account. Have you sent the CVS form my way? You can send it via email instead of faxing if that is more convenient.
This needs to go through registration yet, and there are a few odd ends as to what "Occitan" really means, as it's a language group rather than a particular language.
It's sure there are several variants for Occitan, so you can call my language Lengadocian, it would be more precise.
Just as a suggestion, you might also try "Occitan Lengadocian" o "Occitan (Lengadocian)". Other variants might be called accordingly.
Just as a curiosity, how do native speakers in Lengadoc normally call their language, Lengadocian or Occitan (not in English, I mean)?
That's it, the CVS contributor form has just been e-mailed to email@example.com :-)
Form received via email. Awaiting Axel's go ahead to create.
What's up? :-)
Sorry to try and "up" again but if we wait several months to have a CVS, the motivated persons won't be motivated anymore :-(
Would it be possible to have some news please?
My guess is that you have to provide the tarball of your translation attached in a bug before accessing CVS. That sounds fair, according to me.
Due to a recent overhaul of the committer's agreement, we are requiring new forms be sent for accounts that have yet to be created, even if you have already filled out and submitted the old CVS Contributor Form. Please download the form at http://www.mozilla.org/hacking/committer/committers-agreement.pdf and submit it according to the directions specified at http://www.mozilla.org/hacking/notification/. We apologize for this necessary inconvenience. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks!
I'll do it...
More than 1/3 is now translated (and it works on my computer). Which percentage should I reach to show you my job?
100% done. Just have to send the new form (and I hope there won't be another one meanwhile).
The addon proving the translation is 100% is now available at https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/7854
The new committer's agreement was sent to Marcia a few minutes ago.
Vouching based on my review in the registration bug, ssh key is in, too. Marcia, did you get the form?
Note, this is for hg, too.
adding erica to comment re: receiving the form. Going forward she is the point person for all the forms related to account requests.
I have not received a Committer's Agreement from Yannig.
I sent it by e-mail to Marcia more than two months ago and I have no copy. I'll have to do it again (I hope I'll have time to do it for the third time before the week-end).

CVS access for Occitan (Yannig Marchegay)
I've just sent you the file. In case, I attach it too here.
I have received Yannig's Committer's Agreement.
Marcia, are you going to continue to push the bugs over to IT? This one should be ready.
Yes, moving this one over now. Over to server-ops...
Your CVS account has been created. Your CVSROOT should be:
Don't forget to set your CVS_RSH environment variable to 'ssh'.
Your mercurial account is ready as well. The user name is 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. The repositories are at svn+ssh://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central.
If you have any problems connecting, let me know.
Thanks a lot.
I thought it was 100% translated, why isn't on http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all.html#languages then?
Yannig, there is bug 454159 about shipping firefox. Which is blocked by a few other bugs. Please follow up in those bugs to drive them to resolution.
This bug is about getting you write access to our repos, nothing else. Please keep your comments on topic, we file different bugs for different issues exactly for that.
About this bug, have you tested your accounts yet? I see no commit on either cvs or hg for Occitan other than my own ones yet. Cedric might be able to talk you through the steps.
Sorry about that, I'll try and solve the bugs still open.
The account works (I've just make a commit).
