I’d like to request en_AU-informal “informal” English Australian localeLocale Locale = language version, often a combination of a language code and a region code, for instance es_MX denotes Spanish as it’s used in Mexico. A list of all locales supported by WordPress in https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ created please 🙂

The default remains formal.

I couldn’t find any specific requirements in the handbook regarding what else is required for an informal variant of a locale to be setup, if there is please let me know and I’ll go and gather that to add to this request.

Please verify the WordPress version before releasing localized versions.

For WordPress 3.9 and 3.9.1 a handful of localized builds were compiled against an incorrect tag/head/revision and released, the effect of this is, in this case resulted in end users WordPress installs would now display that they are now running `4.0-alpha`. There is no obvious way to repair the WordPress install once this happens.

Here is the fix from the support thread for 3.9.x releases, it is a simple fix though extremely annoying and frustrating for end users.

Once you have ‘built’ your localized version of WordPress please download the releaseRelease A release is the distribution of the final version of an application. A software release may be either public or private and generally constitutes the initial or new generation of a new or upgraded application. A release is preceded by the distribution of alpha and then beta versions of the software. to your local PC, extract the archive and confirm that the `$wp_version = ` in `/wp-includes/version.php` matches the version of WordPress you are expecting to release, once that is confirmed then go ahead and click ‘release’.

I know @nacin is working to resolve and improve the tools we use to avoid these types of situations and until that is the case manually verifying the version only takes an extra minute before you ‘release’.

Cheers, Stephen
