Description Ahmad Samir 2011-06-18 01:12:20 CEST
The string "List of lists" in https://ml.mageia.org should be "List of mailing lists" or "Show all mailing lists", IMHO.

That's unfortunatey a upstream supplied template. We can ovveride it, but I do not know how it would work with the translation system ( likely not as I wish ).

Priority: Normal => Low
CC: (none) => misc
Severity: normal => enhancement

Comment 2 Ahmad Samir 2011-06-18 07:33:59 CEST
I didn't consider the translations angle, probably easier leaving it as is.
Comment 3 Oliver Burger 2011-06-18 10:47:25 CEST
Since the only available translation is French, I think - without wanting to hurt the French's feelings - we can safely ignore the translation angle.
Or is there just no other language installed out of some unknown reason?

Comment 4 Michael Scherer 2011-06-18 13:08:13 CEST
People have asked to install other translations in the past, and french got installed just to test. 
But the problem is that installing translaton requires to install locales-XX for each language, which in turn could have other impacts ( even if the impact may be low, after some reflexion ).

And there is the issue of translating templates. 

So we can decide to not translate anything ( which I have no problem with personnally, but some people may not like it and it will make the interface harder to use for those that do not speak english )
Or find someone to investigate ( and also enhance the layout of the website, etc ).

In the mean time, I will remove the french interface ( and see if someone complain ).
Comment 5 Oliver Burger 2011-06-18 13:19:45 CEST
Ah I see. I personally don't need translations as well.
Just one more thought about it. All lists except the i18n-<lang> lists are in English and the i18n folks should have no problem with the English language, so I have to wonder if there are people not speaking English wanting to register on one of the mls.

We cannot exclude some local ml : either users ( once there is enough of them and a proper structure to avoid the divide we had seen on Mandriva ) , or to organize events, ( once there is enough to warrant creation of a more formal group ).

LOL, when I go there now, I end up in akregator. Is it supposed to be rss?
