Hard string freeze is now in effect…

Translation Teams
> ocean90: We now have 4,690 Translation Contributors, ~3 new per day.
> First is, Siobhan reached out yesterday and asked for Polyglots help for the 4.2 release video.
> They want to subtitle that for as many languages as possible.
> If you’re interested in translating the script for the video in your language, please ping @petya after the meeting with your Gmail address or drop a note on the post

Translation help needed for the WordPress 4.2 Release video
> There are two European WordCamps + contributor days this week – WordCamp Belgrade and WordCamp Bratislava
> They’ll both be on Sunday, 19th.
> I will be online and helping new contributors get familiar with the work we do.
> Anyone who wishes to mentor a new contributor on that day would be highly appreciated
If your around Sunday keep an eye on the #polyglots channel and say hi and lend a hand if you can 🙂
> I want to put a solid effort into finding new contributors for all locales around WordCamp Europe this year. Anyone interested in scheduling a separate chat to brainstorm ideas on how to do that?
> There was a chat last night in #meta-i18n about future infrastructure plans around themes and plugins in the repo, Rosetta sites etc.
> If you’re interested, the logs are here:
> And if anyone wants to sum the meeting up for everyone in Polyglots, that would be great.
I plan on doing this, but as the logs above from last nights chat in #polyglots there’s not much to sum up yet, much of discussion was about ideas of how we may want to set the sites up, kind of fleshing out the arcticture of the Multi Network, Multi Site approach for i18n’ing

Following up since the #meta-i18n chat @isaackeyet has added some thoughts and mockups of the GlotPress UI
> BTW If you’re interested, join us: Tuesdays 11:00 UTC #meta-i18n :simple_smile: (edited)

Polyglots Chat this Wednesday at 13:00 UTC

Hello everyone!

We’re going to have a polyglots chat this Wednesday at 13:00 UTC (9:00 EDT, 15:00 CET, 20:00 ICT, 22:00 JST).

I know it’s short notice, so we’ll do again next week at the same time.

Some things to think about ahead of our chat:

  • We’re now at 50 localizations of WordPress 4.0! How do we scale to 100+ languages, both technically (GlotPress) and process-wise?
  • WordCamp SF is coming up, along with the community summit. Who’s planning on attending?
  • The first day of the community summit is an unconference-style day. What topics do we want to talk about with the community?
  • Also at WCSF, we’ll have a couple of days afterwards to talk about polyglots and work together. What things should we accomplish? Is there a project that would be easy and worthwhile to complete over the two days?

See you on Wednesday!

Edit: I forgot to mention that the chat will be in #WordPress-polyglots on IRC.
