Message groups for banner only in campaigns that have ended should be dealt with properly
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Given that there is basic CentralNotice/Translate integration (bug 36591), when a banner with a message group is only associated with one or more campaigns that have ended[1], one of two things should be done for these message groups:

  1. They should be deregistered with Translate
  2. They should be marked as discouraged in Translate

Alternatively, this could be done a third way:

  1. bug 37141 makes it possible to register a message group with Translate. A second button could be added to deregister with Translate or discourage a message group in Translate.

Is this causing translators to do wasted work? Should we increase this to "Normal" priority?

Yes and yes, IMO.

Please holler if we should set to High, even.

I can't assess. Maybe I help you assess: I'd say that if 25% or more of translatable content is out of use because the campaigns have ended, and this amounts to 50 messages or more, you have a real time waster for translators.
