Translations missing when migrating from 10.8.5-ee to 11.8.6-ee


When user language preference language is set to English, everything work’s fine. But when we switch user language preference language to French : we got an error 500 server when displaying the homepage

Here is the server log content :

It seems that fr.time.formats.timeago_tooltip variable is missing in french translation. We tried to add the variable in the french locale file :

Then we reconfigured and restarted gitlab instance, still the error 500.

After that, we tried to change source code like this :


This workaround fixes the problem but it’s not the best way

Does this ring a bell with anyone? Any ideas?


FYI Gitlab update fixed our problem
