Fedora Translation Schedule - Action Items (Trans, Devel, Rel-eng).



Hi all,

As you might have already noticed an email from John Poelstra regarding Fedora 12 Translation Schedule, there are couple of changes introduced for the first time in the schedule to help FLP translators.

Earlier schedule tasks (related to translations) used to be:
- Software string freeze (For Developers, changes to the translatable messages file will require FLP's approval) - Software Translation Period (For Translators, to complete the translation of Fedora packages) - Software rebuild packages (For Packagers, to rebuild packages with latest submitted translations).

Now, it is changed to,
- Software string freeze (For Developers, changes to the translatable messages file will require FLP's approval)
- Software Translation Period (For Translators, to translate Fedora packages)
- Software rebuild packages (For Packagers, to rebuild packages with latest submitted translations - For Translators' review). - Software Translation Review Period (For Translators, to review translation of Fedora packages) - Software rebuild packages (For Packagers, to rebuild packages with latest submitted translations - Final rebuild). Schedule in detail: http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-12/f-12-trans-tasks.html

These changes were basically introduced to overcome issues like,
- translators are not able to review their translations
- translators are most of the time clueless on whether their translations will be included in the latest package or not.

Since these changes are introduced for the first time in Fedora schedule, it needs to be communicated to all affected groups. I had a discussion with noriko and mishti today morning and we listed down major actions as mentioned below. Let's know if you find any modification to it or you would like to help with any of it.

*List of action items:*
1. Request John Poelstra to update the schedule with correct entry - "Build packages for which Fedora is upstream for all language translators' review & correction"
2. Request John Poelstra to communicate to devel-list about this newly added entry
3. File Tracker Bug and bugs against respective packages (will start from 10th Sept)
	-> Make sure you mark the bugs as "High Priority" bugs
-> Make sure you explain the reason to the package maintainer properly that the rebuilt package should reach to end users and should be released under Fedora. 4. Request developers individually to help with the bugs, since they might not be aware of this new change 5. Once Package Maintainers rebuild the packages by due date (14th Sept), request Release Engineering to release those rebuilt packages.
6. Get in touch with any of the release engineers to ensure they help us with this.
7. Closely monitor whether the packages are actually rebuilt & released or not.
8. Inform FLP (translation) team again after the package rebuilds.
9. FLP members will do 'yum update' on their rawhide machines to review their translation and submit updated translation through transifex by 22nd September.

Thanks!
