I’m receiving a bunch of Rosetta Deploy Requests, and this usually happens just before a new release. Please keep in mind that deploying rosetta is in no way related to building and releasing a new package. The process simply and only deploys translations of your xx.wordpress.org site itself.

I am receiving reports that the fr_FR translation is not being “pushed” correctly (the WP update itself goes fine).
Apparently, WordPress still displays the “Update now” message when in fact only the translation has to be updated.
I myself have seen translations not being updated on my sites in the past.
I am currently gathering information — I’m unsure if this is about 3.8.x or 3.9-RC2-fr_FR (which we released yesterday).
WordPress 3.9 is being released at 1700 GMT, or about 10 hours from now.
I’m sorry you didn’t get more lead time on a few strings. I recognize there has been some string flux over the past week, as a result of the about page, some strings that had gone untranslated accidentally, etc. Just wanted to say I know how much time you put into these and thanks for all you do.
After 3.9 I’ll be spending a few weeks working primarily on localization and internationalization, so expect some exciting things.

WordPress 3.8.2 has been released. It is a security release. There are no string changes.
WordPress 3.7.2 was also released, but it is only being used for auto-updates. Users are not presented with this package. There is no need to package this. It also had no string changes.
The tags exist so you don’t need the revision number, but it’s 27893.
In case you haven’t noticed, WordPress.org profile redesign is up. People can now get badges for their contributions. Here is an example for polyglots http://profiles.wordpress.org/vanillalounge/.
@vanillalounge I assume that you have access to the list of people currently contributing in make/polyglots. Could you please send it to someone in meta (probably Ian Dunn), so that we can get those shiny new badges? Thanks
Hi I have a request regarding renaming Divehi laguage to Dhivehi. Official name is “Dhivehi” not Divehi. So could you please make this change. And also dv_MV is a rtl language.
Hey Polyglot admins,
The WordPress Android GlotPress project: http://translate.wordpress.org/projects/android/dev is currently pulling data from the old svn repository. We moved to Github and we would like to pull the `strings.xml` file from our git repository (branch `develop` – https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-Android/blob/develop/res/values/strings.xml).
Can someone please make these changes? Ping me on IRC #WordPress-Mobile (mbiais) if you need more details.
As mentioned in @xibe‘s thread, all strings for WordPress 3.9 have now been vetted and are ready to be translated. There are about 250 new strings across the frontend, admin, and network admin. Most are short and simple, and come from one of two places: media and the TinyMCE editor.
Additionally, Akismet has been spun off from the main WordPress POT files. This will be included in your main package download. (You’ll be able to test this in a bit.) It looks like about 89 strings are new for Akismet 3.0.
Additionally, there will be an about page, and possibly some help updates. I’m going to see to it that those are done by April 1. We plan to release on or about April 16.
I don’t know when/if there will be a string freeze, but I don’t think it matters too much. Other than help/about, I don’t expect for there to be too many more strings added or changed — maybe 10-20 at most. Many teams have already completed everything so far. We’ll definitely have strings frozen by the weekend before our planned release. Again, everything has been vetted, so don’t expect much more churn — it is safe to get to work now.
As always, if you see a typo or other problem, please open a ticket. Or if you have an issue with a string, feel free to open a new thread here.
For those who care: it seems the 3.9.x string have finally landed on translate.wp.org, with the 3.8.x ones having moved to their own folder. Thanks, behind-the-scenes team!
Not many new strings as far as I can, so you know what to do
Heads up: WordPress 3.9 Beta 1 will be announced in the next hour or so. You’ll see 3.9 on translate.wordpress.org (with all strings imported) within the next 12 hours or so, so you can get started. Thanks for your patience!
3.9 final is targeted for mid-April.
Can I get admin rights to the WordPress-iOS project on translate.wordpress.org? I need to be able to upload new strings files for translation. Thanks!!
