New Maverick language packs ready for testing

Friday, December 10, 2010

We’ve uploaded  language packs in the maverick-proposed repository for everyone to test before they are released to all users. These should contain all the updates and fixes in translations done since the Maverick release date.

I’d like to ask translation teams and other community members to test them and provide an indication that they’ve done so by following some simple steps and submitting a sign-off, so that we know that translations have been successfully tested.

Simply follow the instructions in this page and add your sign-off in the table at the bottom:

The deadline for the testing is the 17th of December (in a weeks’ time). After that, we’ll update the language packs we’ve received feedback for into maverick-updates, so that all users can benefit from the new translations and fixes.

Remember that you’ll have to enable the maverick-proposed repository to get these updates.

Some Notes

Language Pack Update Schedule

Kenneth Nielsen from the Ubuntu Danish translation team has been rocking in getting the language packs schedule project into shape this cycle. Give him a hug if you see him around!

We’ve now got a plan for the Maverick schedule, including a wiki calendar, a google calendar and an iCal feed:

You can now subscribe to the calendar with your calendar client (e.g. with Evolution) or web e-mail account, so that you can stay up to date on the next scheduled updates and coordinate translations accordingly.

You’ll find the links on the wiki calendar page.


If there are open bugs for the translations in your language, it would be great if you could you check that they are fixed and mark them as “Fix Released”.

You can see if there are bugs for your language by going to the following URL:<yourlanguagecode&gt;

As an example, the German team’s URL would be:

Help us getting the language pack tested and get all those fixes and new translations to everyone!
