Hello,
I went to the french deed page of the Developing Nations 2.0 licence, here:
https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr

and tried to access to the legal code, by clicking on the "licence" link, in the phrase "C'est un résumé (et non pas un substitut) de la licence. Avertissement."

The "licence" link redirected me to this page: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/legalcode.fr
which displays:

Not Found

The requested URL /licenses/devnations/2.0/legalcode.fr was not found on this server.
Apache/2.4.10 (Debian) Server at licenses.productionwww.creativecommons.uk0.bigv.io Port 80

This is happening not only with the french page, but with the following languages too, listed at the bottom of the deeds page:

Bahasia Indonesia
hrvatski
latviski
Nederlands
Norsk
polski
română
suomeksi
svenska
Türkçe
українська
العربية
日本語
(plus, indeed, french).

The other languages are working fine.
Yours,
ArgyroNe7

Thank you for reporting this!

The deed.fr link now works (this was the same issue as #750 ).

The "license" link is an error - there are no localised legalcodes for the DevNations license. Older versions of the deed do not have this error:

https://web.archive.org/web/20070710201432/http://creativecommons.org:80/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr

The last version without this error captured by archive.org is the version before the template change -

https://web.archive.org/web/20160404183340/http://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr

And the first version with it is the first after the change -

https://web.archive.org/web/20170703053531/https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr

However this is a coincidence, the translation string is the same in both versions:

  {% trans %}This is a human-readable summary of (and not a substitute for) the <a href="legalcode" class="fulltext">license</a>.{% endtrans %}

So this is a Transifex translation problem to be added to the 3.0 vs. 4.0 license link format problem.

@georgehari does this make sense as an explanation of the problem?

It makes sense, but are you sure that the string

This is a human-readable summary of (and not a substitute for) the <a href="legalcode" class="fulltext">license</a>.

from Transifex propagates to https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr?

I added .fr to the link in the translation on Transifex last week, now it's:

C'est un résumé (et non pas un substitut) de la <a href="legalcode.fr" class="fulltext">licence</a>.

but it's not visible online (is the script still uploading new translated strings every Monday?).

The translations are delayed - I was on vacation last week and I was hoping to use the current strings as a test of a new webhook based deploy but I will deploy them now.

@cproof Thank you for reporting this! I'm going to split that out to a separate issue here - #796

@georgehari We have three issues:

  1. There isn't a French Devnations 2.0 legalcode, so we should 404 that.
  2. The Devnations 2.0 deed shouldn't link to a legalcode.fr.
  3. I need to fix what happens for ported (rather than merely translated) licenses with a single language translation.

Please can you take a look at 2 again and see if there is something sensible we can do?

  1. Yes, at https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/deed.fr, the word "licence" links to a 404 page and it shouldn't - https://creativecommons.org/licenses/devnations/2.0/legalcode.fr. Can you please remove the link?
    Also, in the same page, instead of "Pays en voie de développement License", it should be "Licence pays en voie de développement".
