Proposed Thunderbird 2 L10n String Freeze Date

Hi All,

We're working on the final schedule for Thunderbird 2. Our current thought it to be l10n string complete and code complete on Tuesday morning, February 27th PST.

That would leave 26 days between now and the freeze for localizers to react to any string suggestions from beta 2 testers.

Does anyone have any big objections to this date?

Thanks!

A bunch of localizers, in particular those of prominent european locales 
are probably at FOSDEM the weekend before that. Might include the Friday 
and the Monday, too. That's probably not helping the last minute polish 
rush. Not sure how bad it would be, though.

How many days after the string freeze we have to finish-up the localization?

Heh, I think there's some confusion. By the morning of the 27th your locale needs to be finished and ready to go if it's going to be part of the Thunderbird 2 release. En-us strings have been frozen since early December (dec. 4th?). 

Cheers,

As the freeze is tuesday 27th *PST*, I dare say this will not be a
problem for European locales if en-US remains relatively frozen. On the
other hand, pushing the freeze *time* from the usual 12am PST to 3pm PST
would add many Europeans some valuable evening (working) hours.

Hello all,

Just wanted to query the progress on my application for CVS access for
the Kinyarwanda language project, Bug 330026
(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330026). This was filed
in September, at a time when everyone was too busy getting ready for
2.0, but we were informed we might make one of the 2.0.0.x releases.

Has this been overlooked, or are the reviewers still too busy?

Regards,
Stephen Holt,
Kigali, Rwanda.

I'm sorry to admit, but this is not overlooked, but hanging in a blocked 
queue. Right now, I can't really say anything constructive on new 
locales, because I don't know where to put them.

I'm trying to unblock that queue, but failed so far.

Sorry, I haven't seen the announcement that the en-us strings are frozen.

Hi Scott and all.

This means L10N deadline also extended to 03/06?
or L10N deadline is still 02/27?

Thanks.

l10n string freeze
Dear all, we’re planning to do a Gaia string freeze on Friday, September 14th. Basically, we should make sure that all internationalized strings are defined on Friday, so Staś and our l10n contributors can ensure Gaia will be properly localized on October 26th — at least for the targeted locales: en-US, es, pt-BR. After Friday we won’t land any new l10n resource in Gaia, and the l10n repository will be moved to a Mercurial one on l10n.mozilla.org. If you missed a string, I’ll let you deal with Staś about that. :-p I’ve made some cleanup in all Gaia l10n resources [1] (exc...
