Thanks for your reply!
RelEng is open for input on the schedule. That's how we added
Translation-specific dates on it, two releases ago. :-)
To answer the Q, we don't actively participate, but we could
participate. The best ways to do so would be by opening a ticket on
their trac intstance, getting a discussion going on the next releng
meeting about what we need from them, and participating in the
on-topic discussion when prompted for:
which gives two dates for "PO Files due from Translation", one is 21st
October, 2008 (Testing phase - Beta release) and another is 6th
November, 2008 (Lauch phase - Release Candidate). However,
gives only one date, that is
21st October for "Translation Freeze".
So, can we find some clarity on the schedule?
Should I put the same query on the above ticket? OR Any of the FLSCo
members can find it out?
FWIW, during the F9 cycle I've asked for a window of one week
the string freeze date and the feature freeze (packaging). I guess
this time 'round we didn't catch the ommition in time.
Ankit, feel free to communicate our needs with the team. I'm sure
they'll be open for tweaks for the next release.
Our need is to know the due date to submit our translations. The reason,
date looks important to me (and I think for all localizers) is because,
strings keep on changing even if there is a "String Freeze" date given
to the developers. Which basically increase our efforts most of the
times to complete the translations. So, if we know the last date to
submit the translations then we all can estimate our workload and
schedule the translations accordingly.

Thanks a lot!
