and the “quantity” tag is related to how plurals are handled by a language, so it can different between different strings.xml files.
Crowdin seems to be changing the attribute of quantity when they are different between files. For example
<item quantity="many">%d magnets</item>
<item quantity="other">%d magnets</item>
but the French language needs “many” and not “other”. Android added a check for this on its linter so now CI fails with the error
app/app/src/main/res/values-fr/strings.xml:207: Error: For locale "fr" (French) the following quantity should also be defined: many (e.g. "1000000 de jours") [MissingQuantity]
You’re using new French rules, right? I saw few topics here in community, seems there was a language rules update recently, and “Many” was added to few languages, along with French.
I had a private direct conversation with Crowdin support, they told me that the task about native support of a new “many” will be released as 1 deployment-update for all languages that were affected by this “many” change. It’s a big task and should be done approximately in Q1 2023.
Yes, Thanks for the reply. I searched for previous questions but couldn’t find anything. I still have my weblate instance so maybe I’ll use that again (if it actually support this feature) in the meanwhile
The task is not done yet. As my colleague Dima mentioned it is a bit technically tricky one and it may took some time. But once it will be done we will immediately let you know. Please accept our apologises for the inconvenience you faced!
