Re: Does Translation auto merge between default, stable, old stable releases?

There is a huge problem with old branches in whole GNOME. You can have the
master branch translated but the actual package can contain some old stable
branch (say 3.22) that you cannot see from the main team page. If you do not
know where to find the _actual_ branch it becomes a real PITA for the users.

How is this a problem exactly? Old branches are most probably not going to see a release and translations brought to them would then never reach the user. *That* would indeed be wasted work. On the rare occasion where you know that a given old branch will have a release, you can still find it, as you pointed out.

Translations and Damned lies are not a completionist game where the goal is to have 100%, even on past releases. Old releases may not be fully translated, and that is fine.
