Meeting Notes

Firefox / Fennec updates

Web L10n

  • Mozilla Europe in Serbian released just after MozCamp
  • Mozilla Europe in Bulgarian should be done by the end of the month
  • Caitlin sent her last edits to Fennec pages to Steven yesterday, hopefully Pascal can (re)-start QA for them tomorrow night
  • Thunderbird team have difficulties providing stable content for localization, hopefully they will have this done by the end of the week
  • Bugs for 3.6 pages (in-product and product) filed, apparently lmesa leads the in-product pages and Tara the product ones, very early stages, no final content yet
  • Looks like marketing is thinking of a minisite for 5 years of Firefox
  • JDLL event in center of France this week (Thursday to Saturday), lots of French speaking mozillians coming (17), we are turning that into a mini-mozcamp with booth, conferences and activities around it (l10n sprint for AMO, bug triaging for Thunderbird/Kompozer, fun activities around 5 years of Firefox...)


  • AMO 5.2
  • Roughly all locales are behind by ~500 strings
    • Danish, Spanish, Polish are up-to-date
  • AMO has more strings than any other project
  • Every release has about 60 strings
  • 85% of strings are developer hub
  • Enabled Adrian's l10n validator

Stuff AMO team could do better:

  • Release schedule only allows teams to push every 3 weeks
  • Mismatch in waiting for l10n and how fast the AMO team wants to move

Productization and de-betaing

  • Stas sick today, but covered in yesterday's bug triage call


  • Update on multi-lingual QA
  • Need to communicate our strategy better
  • Here is one attempt: http://people.mozilla.com/~timr/L10n/L10nQAStrategyDiagrams.pdf
  • Other ideas with MultiLingual QA
    • Add locales
    • Get them testing on the locales we have already examined
    • Test planning for locales
    • Mobile testing
    • Website testing
    • They have a file format that they use to do tests, but they haven't been quite clear on what they use to test. Could be XLIFF.


  • Signoff App: Bugs needing to be filed
    • Need some form of review from web-dev
    • Need to make sure the thing stays up
    • Need a development agenda/plan
      • Not clear how we work to 1.1
      • Set up a development environment
