This page aims to gather information on plans regarding mainline content changes affecting each textdomain. It's strongly advised for translators to follow the recommendations as it might save you *a lot* of work.

In the cycle after 1.8 the term general development does cover large punctuation changes. This means that apostrophes, dashes, minuses and stuff like this were changed and unified to use the unicode chars meant for this stuff. Only a part of those changes could be automatically converted in the translations using tools like pofix.py. This leads to many fuzzy strings.

The term small corrections means changes that alter grammar, punctuation and fix typos but tend to not change the general meaning. If this is listed as only term in the area of planned changes it means that just general cleanup and spelling fixes will happen without bigger changes being planned. If it is listed as the only item in the "changed stuff" area it means that not too many really bigger changes did take place and most should be covered in a short time.

The term soft string freeze means almost the same as smaller corrections, it is just a little stricter. So there should be no changes beside spelling and grammer fixes in those frozen textdomains at all.

The term none - stringfreeze active! means just that. All changes that happen from now on are either explicitly announced on the translation mailing list (and should be damn small) or they are gracefully handled by utils/pofix.py which is run before files are commited (so the changes are tiny, too...).

Summary of possible statuses:

  • not ready - not done at all and many changes planned
  • wait for stringfreeze - changes can happen any time in this textdomain, better wait for the stringfreeze
  • not sure - not sure how much might change
  • ready - ready for translations, feel free to work on things, not much should change
