Could we imagine that, as it is the case with Moodle, this script
becomes part of the upgrade.php script and automatically upgrade the
langpack to the latest version of the release at each upgrade?

The upgrade script would look at the installed langpacks and upgrade
them with the latest version.

Langpacks (I am talking about the French's one at least) are evolving
with the feedback of users pointing out mistranslation or
grammar/spelling mistakes. So it is good to update the pack on one's
distro time to time. The upgrade.php could do this.

  Adding cli for langpacks

Status in Mahara:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  When Mahara is being updated to a new minor or major version, admins
  need to remember to pull language packs separately as they are not
  part of the core distribution. This cli script will make that easier.

  This this cli does: 
  1) Install / update langpacks by listing the languages by their code, eg de = 
German, fr = French like so 

  sudo -u www-data php admin/cli/sync_langpacks.php -l=de,fr

  This will make a backup of the existing language (if exists) into the
  dataroot langpacks_backup directory.

  2) If you don't want to make backups then add the -b=false flag, eg

  sudo -u www-data php admin/cli/sync_langpacks.php -l=de,fr -b=false

  3) If you need to rollback the backups you can use the -r=true flag,

  sudo -u www-data php admin/cli/sync_langpacks.php -l=de,fr -r=true
