Re: create a language pack

Users can't create language pack themselves, only participate in the translations. Unfortunately the german pack has been removed by Google because it violates the Google Play Developer Program Policies. The problem is that I have NO idea why... This is an old and broken link, where did you find it?...

Re: Automatically enable disabled package from appdrawer

The context is the one you can get through Lightning.getActiveScreen().getContext() (for instance).
In fact it is possible to set custom actions on app drawer items (through scripting!) but I would discourage this as it can break the app drawer behavior.
