We started filling out data about locale status during the releases to get a history of how things progressed as far back as we can. To give a hand with filling out the data, please ask for access to the spreadsheet.

Tech update was enabled and works pretty good.

Coming later this day: When a plugin releases a new version all translations will be copied from dev to stable.

Handbook task list

  • Add a page about how WordPress ships translations based on Nikolay & John’s video from GWTD

Let’s create a list of questions to add to the FAQ section of the handbook:

  • Add a Frequently asked questions page and include
    • How often are translations deployed for plugins (every six hours?)
    • How long does it take for new translations to get to users? (translations get pushed every 24 hours?)
    • How do translations for Rosetta sites appear on the site? (Automatically pushed every 24 hours, at 1pm UTC)
    • Why are my translations still ‘waiting’?
    • Why my translations were rejected? What can I do in that case?
    • I have translations in po/mo files, how can I import them in
    • How long does it take for a new plugin/theme to get added to
    • Why can’t I be a GTE for all languages for my plugin/theme?
    • I’m getting a lot of “502 Bad Gateway”. What can I do?
    • Other FAQs? Add them in the comments

Open discussion

  • Support Team mentioned that Codex will be retired and translations will get lost. We need to collect more information here.
  • Organizing WordCamp Europe, there is a chance @petya won’t be around at the weekly meetings for the next weeks. It is important to keep the meetings going. @chantalc, @deconf, @wolly, @tacoverdo, @pixolin and @coachbirgit will take care of organizing the meetings.

Thank you to everyone who participated! Please leave comments if you have anything else to add to the notes.
