I did all I could on the reverse proxy side. https://translate.tails.boum.org/ is a thing. reverse proxy set up, with TLS cert. But Apache created an endless redirection loop (it redirected http to https, but it should not because we terminate TLS on the reverse proxy, and we already have such a redirection in place there), so I’ve fixed it. Also, I think that most the /var/lib/weblate paths in the apache config are wrong.

For the Apache ServerAdmin setting: we need a single email address that points to the admins. Get a mailing list or an alias for the admin team?

Oops, I don’t understand what’s expected from me here.

From my point of view, the only task that’s been assigned to me on this project is “2.1. Create and configure a VM”, with 0 days, because I did that already: that’s #10180. My understanding is that this very ticket is rather about “2.2. Set up and configure the web interface”, which is on emmapeel’s plate. I’m happy to keep Puppet’izing whatever emmapeel needs for the basic Weblate setup, but for the moment I’m waiting for info I’ve requested a while ago on this ticket and some other related ones.

Now, if things look different from your point of view, please help me understand what work I’m supposed to do :)

I am simply doing some cleaning, and wanted to unparent, then close this ticket :) But you’re too fast for me!

I have been adding some subtasks to this issue for a while, so i decided to open it again, as the original install is not finished yet from my POV.
