Localization Topics

  • some locales are "staying up to date with trunk"
    • can we get a list? Here's a snapshot of locales updating from the 23rd (updated 29th, weekend check-ins, 4 more):
      • ca
      • cs
      • es-AR
      • es-ES
      • fr
      • he

  • would need a grace period of 24hrs after freeze for those locales to catch up with last minute changes
  • no additional QA needed, those localizers tend to do their own QA
