 * We should avoid generating language packs on Wednesdays, which are Launchpad rollout days
 * If language pack generation on Tuesdays take longer than usual (say 10h), we might even hit our early Wednesday rollouts and language packs might not be generated.
 * The timing is chosen so we hit the times when we usually expect the lowest load. Most of the translation work happens in Europe, South America and Asia, and 2200 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.

Purpose

This page documents the schedule of automatic translations tarball exports from Launchpad to be used as a source to langpack-o-matic to create the Ubuntu language packs.

Crontabs live in a branch on devpad:/code/pqm/crontabs/launchpad-production/ (look at the loganberry-launchpad file).

Caveats

  • We should avoid generating language packs on Wednesdays, which are Launchpad rollout days
  • If language pack generation on Tuesdays take longer than usual (say 10h), we might even hit our early Wednesday rollouts and language packs might not be generated.
  • The timing is chosen so we hit the times when we usually expect the lowest load. Most of the translation work happens in Europe, South America and Asia, and 2200 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.

Current export schedule (as of 2010-06-29)

These are the starting days of the exports. The cron jobs to start generating the language-pack tarballs start on these days, at 22:00 server time. Then langpack-o-matic picks them up at 14:00 (server time) the next day.

  • Monday: Lucid

  • Tuesday: Maverick

  • Wednesday: none (Launchpad releases day)

  • Thursday: none

  • Friday: Karmic

  • Saturday: Maverick

  • Sunday: none

Notes: Hardy exports on request - TBD

Current Ubuntu language pack build schedule

  • Maverick: "0 14 * * 3,7"
