Petya (@petya) is in active conversations with the current Persian GTE team regarding the waiting new GTE requests. Hopefully an active discussion will happen this week in the comments below the requests.
Taco (@tacoverdo) will ping the GTEs of locales that are at 95%+ in a post on make/polyglots
No technical updates this week.
WordPress Translation Day Videos
The twenty videos taken from the sessions on WPTD shall be published at WordPress.tv. Those who did a session are kindly asked to log in, download their video and upload it to WordPress.tv The description should explain the video was part of the event. It would be OK to edit the videos to remove the introduction. More editing shouldn’t be necessary. @casiepa volunteers to upload the remaining videos on Monday next week.
- Please comment below if you will take care of your own video
- If you’d like to help out and need access to Crowdcast, please ping @petya on Slack
- Might be good for @oleg to get on board (Oleg, please let us know if you also want access to the raw videos)
Handbook FAQ page draft Google Doc by @casiepa
Handbook draft has been published as Google Doc at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1g4If4Tb8rjAob5F66031ve4MXK64cYE5tuuNuSpWlsc
Everybody is welcome to contribute.
Before being published, new entries for the FAQ will be proof read by other team members (pinged in the polyglot channel)
Pascal (@casiepa) now has access to add content to the handbook alongside Naoko (@nao), @coachbirgit, @pixolin, @petya, @ocean90, @chantalc, @deconf and @tacoverdo. Any of them can proofread and publish drafts if needed.
WordCamp Europe contributor day: @tacoverdo set up a hackpad doc
@tacoverdo worked on a hackpad but will publish it as a blog post here.
Things to decide are:
- Who’s leading new contributors–needs to be a current experienced GTE with the help of current translation contributors
- Who’s leading the extra activities & discussions – needs to be someone closely involved with activities, who’s attended the weekly chats, ideally someone from the Leadership team or most active contributors.
While the meta team is available for contact, we should try and push for the Rosetta P2s again and remind the meta team of our current priorities regarding GlotPress and features of translate.wordpress.org, such as “Reject with feedback”, “Notifications for GTEs and PTEs” and Global Glossary.
Current contributor day stats for polyglots:
- We have 57 people signed up for Polyglots so far
- Of them 9 are completely new (so will need to attend the onboarding workshop)
- 26 have translated but are not very experienced
- 22 are either very experienced or team leads
WordPress.org forums upgrade timeline
The polyglots team is happy to hear about the planned update of the support forums to bbPress 2.x
Naoko (@nao) will add a blog post for discussions shortly.
Naoko (@nao) would like to discuss PTE status for multiple locales. She’ll write a blog post here, soon.
