  • Status changed from New to Accepted

In fact, the zip takes ages to be generated and is corrupted:

$ unzip TYPO3.ext.multishop-de.zip 
Archive:  TYPO3.ext.multishop-de.zip
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of TYPO3.ext.multishop-de.zip or
        TYPO3.ext.multishop-de.zip.zip, and cannot find TYPO3.ext.multishop-de.zip.ZIP, period.

Interestingly for the different zip files, the server sends something, which at least looks like the proper header data, including file sizes different from zero. These sizes also might fit the contents of the according zip files. Only the files you get then are 0 bytes...

https://translation.typo3.org/es/TYPO3.core.lang/export/zip gives you an 0-length ZIP file after 1 waiting for one minute :)

This is the code for Pootle 2.7:

It basically serializes the store and offers the resulting file for download - at least that is what it should do...

Same for me, when I tried to download a translation, the downloaded zip file is corrupted and has a zero size.

We are working on an international project and would like to contribute some languages to different extensions, but we are also not able to download the xlf-files.

When will this bug be resolved?

Thank you in advance for your efforts!

At least not before a few months. Reason is that Pootle 2.7 is still broken and 2.8 is around the corner but not yet available.

I have the same probleme with this file : https://translation.typo3.org/fr/TYPO3.core.frontend/export/zip
The process take a long time and after download the file size is 0ko.
