    • See [2]
    • for yahoo->google: only switch new users
    • for recent changes (e.g. google->yandex): switch all users
    • we need a policy here, check with kev, beltzner, lilly
    • l10n drivers' recommendation: switch all users to new defaults

  • Gandalf started hacking on Silme 0.7
    • release end of next month

  • community projects, how to report to l10n drivers?
    • adrian's project will be named: Koala
    • Seth will blog to introduce Koala
  • do we need an interaction designer for the dashboards?
    • if yes, sooner or later?
    • currently: many navigational usability problems
  • would be good to have someone do the visual design
    • consistent visual style
    • small, minimalist


  • Discussion about Stas's blog When should we resolve l10n bugs as fixed?
    • should invert the current convention and "resolve fix" when fixed on current branch (next release branch) and add fixed-trunk for landings on trunk?
    • should we start using target milestone?
  • Discussion about post 3.5 migration (l10n-central -> l10n-mozilla-1.9.2)
    • probably the easiest way would be to do an IRC week and handle each locale separately
