This page is an introduction into the translations import and export queues.
Beside the web form submission, translations can also be added to Launchpad using the import queue. Import queue entries are comprised of translations files in various formats.
The queue holds translations coming from upstream or PO files and PO Templates uploaded using the web interface.
Before a file can be imported it must be first approved using the manual approval procedures (Web UI) or the automatic aproval (cronjob) cronscripts/rosetta-approve-imports.py.
Gettext files are actually import using the cronscripts/rosetta-poimport.py cronjob.
The export request are done from the Web UI and the cronscripts/rosetta-export-queue.py cronjob is generating the required files for the export, upload them on Librarian and send notification emails.
