Description

Currently the translation statistics on translate.fedoraproject.org are updated at 3 times during the day[1]: 0100, 0900, 1700 UTC.

With updates being made by the appilcation/docs authors and translators, there is a huge lag in the updated display of translation statistics as per the repository revision. Since the translators rely heavily on the translate.fedoraproject.org interface to get the latest working copy of a .po file, they often end up getting an older version of the file. Will it be possible to increase the frequency of updates for the translation statistics interface, so that this problem can be resolved.

Thanks Runa

Actually, statistics seem to only update twice a day. Here's the current cron:

15 1,13 * * * /usr/local/bin/damnedLiesUpdateStats.sh

+1 for more frequent updates.

It should be noted that the statistics sync is an extremely intensive task for the app servers - that is why they are set to update only twice a day. Does this look like something we can afford to bump up now?

I don't think this is necessary, now that F10 is out. Maybe a bit later we could consider it.

FWIW, GNOME has switched to a newer, Django version of Damned Lies. Maybe someone could experiment in running that on one of our publictest servers.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Until Transifex gets deployed for statistics I've also updated the script to run every 2 hours on a dedicated scripting server (we've had it for some time but never updated the job).
