When we discuss a typo or request for context, the developer will receive an email:

  • Theme. Only the main developer will receive an email.
  • PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party. All developers will receive an email. Will be interesting to limit it to only the first 5 developers?
  • Other projects. We are exploring how to get the committer email from the repos (This email may not have a DotOrg user associated with it). This affects:
    • WordPress.
    • Patterns.
    • MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group. For us, this is the team that works on internal WordPress sites like WordCamp Central and Make WordPress..
    • Apps.

Once a developer, a GTEGeneral Translation Editor A General Translation Editor (often referred to as GTE) is a person, who has global access to validate strings on all projects for a specific locale., a PTEProject Translation Editor A Project Translation Editor (often referred to as PTE) is a person, who has access to validate strings on a specific project (for example BuddyPress, WooCommerce or Twenty Fourteen) for one specific locale. A project translation editor can approve strings that are added by translation contributors. Per project translation, editors are appointed by a general translation editor after a request by the project author or by the contributors themselves. or a CLPTECross-locale Project Translation Editor A Cross-Locale Project Translation Editor is an account owned by a plugin or theme author (or the authoring organization), which uses professional translators to localize their product. The cross-locale project translation editor can import/validate strings on a specific project for more than one locale. This role has the same capabilities as a Project Translation Editor over multiple locales instead of one. Cross-Locale Project Translation Editors need to meet a set of criteria before being appointed by General Translation Editors. (depending on the type of discussion) takes part in the conversation, the rest of users with the same or similar profile (GTE, PTE and CLPTE) will stop receiving mails for that thread.

Opt-in vs opt-out. We think the best approach is, by default, to send emails to the developers, GTE, PTE and CLPTE, and add a functionality in the GlotPress main project page to:

  • Opt-out.
  • Change the email to receive these notifications.
