Description Erik Moeller 2012-08-06 17:07:58 UTC
I suggest we centralize the translators database for all wikis that use Translate and TranslationNotifications. This may necessitate giving translators more fine-grained control over what types of pages (by wiki / by topic) they're willing to translate, but is preferable over having to build a translators database for each site that might require translations.
Comment 1 Amir E. Aharoni 2012-08-06 17:34:45 UTC
I agree in principle.

Implementation-wise, currently the "translators database" is, in fact, just a bunch of additional user preferences. Having global preferences is supposed to solve this.

Creating another global database seems a bit of an overkill, especially considering that CentralAuth is a bit of a hack. Do we have any other global storage except the basic login data in CentralAuth?

Identity, messaging, affiliation. :)
Comment 3 Erik Moeller 2012-08-06 19:54:55 UTC
CCing E2 team so this can be looked at in the context of the overall notifications work.
Comment 4 Nemo 2013-02-03 22:44:33 UTC
In the meanwhile several wikis have enabled TranslationNotifications and built their own subscriptions...
