The state selector drop down for the translation extension on meta (normally allowing you to change the current status of the translation) is currently showing only (not set) or $1 and the drop down is empty. This is mostly an issue for centralNotice translations which rely on switching the status to published in order to push the translations live. This is currently only possible through the API.

@Nikerabbit: I doubt I'll have the time to circle back to this, so please go ahead and do whatever you think is appropriate without waiting for my review. Feel free to update or abandon my patch if you want to solve this differently.
While the dropdown does show up on meta now, the state still can't actually be changed with it. All options are marked with the css class "unchangeable". I was able to change state via the API though.
Raising priority since this will be blocking fundraising and other CentralNotice work.
yeah, I've been using the API too, somewhat wondering if a user script would be useful in the mean time. Not sure if I have time to poke around and do it before I go on vacation but would be useful if this ends up taking long.
I intended to do this but looking at the patches I just don't feel comfortable I know enough. I'll ask around in the morning to see if anyone is willing but if anyone else is able to help then please be my guest because this is definitely important. (I'm going on vacation too so I'm concerned about the ability of others to publish banner translations when I'm not there to hack around it for the first week of the board election banners.). @ori any chance you could help this get out?
