Themes that are suspended should not be available for translation

Themes that have been suspended from the theme directory are still available for translation on https://translate.wordpress.org/.

I don't think suspended themes should be available for translation.
The translator can not see the themes current status, unless they visit the link to the
"WordPress.org Theme Page" and notices that the theme is not found.

Translating a suspended theme seems like a waste of time since we do not know if it will be Live in the theme directory again.

Example: https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/sv/default/wp-themes/pia

Suspended themes should actually be marked as inactive. Looks like something is broken there.

Perhaps the specific theme was not suspended correctly. The package is still "live" in the directory admin.

Correct, it's saved as a draft.

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as worksforme. If a theme is suspended it needs to be marked as such.
