We built WP36-RC2-fr_FR for community testing purpose using fr.wp.org, and it turns out it won’t get us to step 2 of the installation process. Blank screen.
It won’t work whether the strings come from our SVN repository (as usual) or from translate.wp.org (same strings, freshly imported).
Won’t even if we temporarily remove translation files.
It will install in fr_FR if we create wp-config.php with the proper install information (jumps to “Site name etc.” section of installer.
Anyone else having this experience.
