Super Villain english? El Salvador!

oh you are funny. It's obviously a mistake in the field of the plone.pot file

"Language-Code: sv\n"
"Language-Name: English\n"

The plone.po file contains:

"Language-Team: Svenska...

Svenska is Sweden.

I don't read the language but it sure looks more like a Nordic language than a Latin one.

@gforcada Will we have to do anything special to account for or has it already been taken care of?

I don't think so, and changes are merged and the pull request in p.a.upgrade is about to get merged, but that's not a blocker IMHO.

@vincentfretin did we miss anything? :thinking:

All good, but we need your upgrade step in the Plone release otherwise it's a translation regression. We don't want that for a minor release.

I have just merged that one ( Would need a new release.
BTW, is down.

Plone 5.1.2 has been soft-released. Please give it a try and let me know if there are any critical issues.

For those who haven’t run across soft-releases before, this is the
last step before the final release. Because things haven’t been
finalized yet, some packages may change between now and the release. It
is not recommended to use soft-releases in production.


plone.releaser: 1.5.5 → 1.6.0

New features:

  • New zest.releaser hook: update other buildout.coredev branches as well.
    This automates the manual bookeeping that one has to do whenever releasing packages:

Jenkins is up again.

@esteele You can remove the temporary Zope2 pins, like I did just now on coredev 5.1.

I see there is a small problem with upgrading, where puts the site in metadata version 5113, where that should have been 5112. That is probably caused by me merging Gil's change late, needing a new release which inadvertently already had defined an upgrade to version 5113. It causes no real problem, but the upgrade gives a warning, which will cause questions, which we definitely do not want.
I'll see what I can do about that.

Okay, I have created a PR to fix the upgrade warning.

Other than that, 5.1.2-pending looks good to me. I tried it on one project.

about this post:

I have given a quick look at this problem and it is sufficient to copy the 5.08 version for



bin/plone-compile-resources -b resourceregistry

and reload the page for the resource registry control panel to fix this regression from 5.0 to 5.1.

it seems that this commit broke it.

When removing it, resources personalisatons are saved again. Now I am not sure that they can be accessed, I have to check the python code for overrides.

replying to myself, no, customized resources can't be accessed correctly, even when saved correctly with 5.08 version of override.js, the line 38 of Products/CMFPlone/

                if resource_filepath in directory:

is not precise enough, it works only if the file is at the root level in the directory, when it is the path of a file (path/to/file) that is used, 'file in directory' returns false. There is a method for that, isFile, when using it everything works.

for completeness about the 5.1.2 problems this little regression should be included;

I can confirm the problem and indeed reverting the changes to Products/CMFEditions/skins/CMFEditions/ is doing the trick, trouble is that there is no 5.1.x (Python 2 only) branch in CMFEditions.

Folder contents navigation is broken with 5.1.2 (and was not before). See

This change has been reverted in 5.1x branch

I've released which includes Maurits' fix for the upgrade warning and Products.CMFPlone which reverts the change that broke the folder contents navigation.

I'm having mixed results running buildout locally, with a "Couldn't find a distribution for '[test]=='" in some cases. Could I get some verification that the 5.1.2-pending is working for others with those two new packages?
