Meeting Notes


  • Worked on February update of Google snippets (opentochoice snippet, mobile, foundation, + several l10n various updates), to go live in a few days if Google is ok.
  • Added locale detection code to our Wordpress install for opentochoice.org + helped with the project in general (bug triage, translation to French, looking for localizers, opening blog accounts, debugging with stas...). Made my locale detection code a php class to make it easily pickable in other mini-sites (will keep on working on that to add the geoIP we use in mozilla-europe as an option)
  • mozeu: added regional languages links in top menus for French and Catalan pages, more locales to come (has to be in agreement with localizers)
  • Fixed footers on mozilla.com to have legal mentions localizable
  • Major update billboards for 3.6 almost complete (58 locales out of 61)
  • found an esperanto volunteer interested in opentochoice


  • browserchoice
    • launched browserchoice.mozilla.com in 16 locales (and counting)
    • 23 total are ready on trunk (due date was today! :)
    • filed bugs for the 9 extra locales that are not part of the initial roll-out of the ballot update. Due date: March 10
      • added them to Verbatim, too
    • See http://l10n.mozilla.org/~stas/euballot/browserchoice-l10n.taskpaper for updates
  • opentochoice
    • launched opentochoice.org in 11 locales
      • fixed l12y bugs (date formats, not-localizable strings etc)
      • managed localizations and the l10n process
      • planned and executed (with webdev) the 0.5 stage-to-prod update
    • planned and executed (with webdev) branching for 0.75 and 1.0
    • planning the l10n process for 1.0 due March 2nd.



  • localize.mozilla.org maintenance work - new locales, initialized projects, some cache cleanups
  • L20n work - Patches ready for DTD/properties replacing. Need to profile performance and compare using XPCOMJS for contentSink vs. native JS loading.
  • Jetpack localization targeted for POC inclusion into Jetpack 0.2 (end of March). I'm working with Myk on the API and how to glue it into other API's. The plan is to wrap the lib as a cuddlefish package for now and then replace it with wrapped xpcom component once we have it landed.


  • AMO 5.7 launched last night, 5.8 scheduled for freeze on 3/9
  • I wrote a library that supports msgctxt in python


No update.
