Pontoon is a localization tool. It specializes in translating websites in-place, but can handle virtually any project that uses one of the standard localization file formats. Development takes place on GitHub, where you can find documentation, ways to get involved and contact information.

This wiki page mainly serves as development roadmap. We use Mozilla wiki, because it integrates with Bugzilla nicely, which we use for tracking bugs.

Prioritizing bugs

We use 5 bug priority levels, which effectively define the short term roadmap. Priority is usually set after the bug has been confirmed by one of the developers.

  • P1: Must be fixed immediately, drop any other work.
  • P2: We want to ship this soon, possibly in the current quarter.
  • P3: Default starting point, possibly shipping the the following two quarters.
  • P4: We expect it to be fixed someday.
  • P5: A valid bug, but we might never fix it, unless you provide a patch.
