Language pack maintainers

Hi!

We realized that language pack maintainers tend to forget changing the contribution status after they commit the submitted translation. The contribution records are left in the status "In review" while they should be closed with the status "Accepted" (or "Rejected" by that does not happen too much).

To make lang pack maintainers' life easier, the following changes were just deployed:

  • when the maintainer starts review of a contribution (or just applies the contribution to the stage), there is a new heading now displayed at the top of the stage page. The heading informs the user that the stage contains string that were contributed by a community member.
  • when the maintainer commits such a stage, AMOS redirects to that stage record so the button "Accept" can be pressed immediately and a feedback to the contributor can be inserted via a comment

We hope that lang pack maintainers find this improvement useful. You may also want to go through the list of submitted contributions and make sure there are no old left in the review state.

Thanks everybody for your great work on translating Moodle!
