Weekly i18n Chat Notes – July 7, 2015

After a four week hiatus (!) we had our weekly i18n chat today. We’ll be continuing these chats every week on Tuesday 11:00 UTC 2015, just like before.

This week, we discussed the following:

  • Forums: While the bbPress 2 forums aren’t quite ready yet (literally no plugin has been ported to bbPress 2 yet), we’re going to move ahead anyway. @ocean90 is going to work on setting up forums for the Italians within the next week, but is running into permissions issues with bbPress.
  • Translate: @ocean90 implemented most of the @isaackeyet‘s design for translate.wordpress.org. With the new designs, there’s only a handful of technical things left before we can start adding additional plugins or themes:
    1. Finish design implementation: The big piece that’s left is adding the sub-project drop down in the top right box, which is needed to allow switching between sub-projects. Additionally, a green outline needs to be around the box if a project is at 100%, but this isn’t blocking anything.
    2. Paging. Without paging, the list of plugins will grow unwieldy. @dd32 is going to work on paging (which needs to be done here).
    3. Roles Plugin Changes: The roles plugin won’t scale if we add hundreds (thousands!) of new projects. We need a UI here – designers wanted! See #1101.
    4. Search: Not needed for an initial import of the top n plugins, but required for when we add all plugins. We’re putting this on hold for now as paging will suit our needs for the foreseeable future.

Beyond the technical list above, we need to talk about how plugins will be imported. Let’s chat this Friday July 10 13:00 UTC 2015 about importing plugins into translate.wordpress.org. If you’re interested in this topic, join us in #meta-i18n.

(As a reminder, all WordPress community meetings are listed on the meeting calendar.)
