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.

Status

For the live status on the language pack builds, have a look here

Note: these are the starting days of the exports. The cron jobs to start generating the language-pack tarballs start on these days. Then langpack-o-matic picks them up the next day.

Notes

  • Launchpad crontabs live in a branch at lp:lp-production-crontabs (look at the loganberry-launchpad file). If the crontab entries need changing, do the updates yourself in a branch and propose a merge.

  • The old timing (was 22:00 UTC) used to be 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 22:00 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.
  • The new timing (10:30 UTC) was chosen to be after the new fastnodowntime window at 10:00 - 10:05 UTC during which the database will shortly be unavailable. This would break the export run and has to be avoided (bug 849829).

  • Currently full language exports take much longer than expected, approaching 24h (bug 684664)
