Sorry to be late to the thread here. I am starting with the homepage
and moving these into separate modules. I'm confident this will work
for an FC-6 update at some point (probably in January 2007), and we will
use that model for release 7 and going forward.
My plan is to modularize the following:
release-notes - only that content from the Beats on the wiki
readme - The standard descriptive README on CD/DVD #1
readme-burning-isos - Helpful information for the mirrors on burning CDs
about - The "About Fedora" menu item
homepage - The browser splash HTML page
the separation seems sensible. Thanks for putting effort into this; I'm sure
most of the translators will be happy to hear it.
With the exception of "release-notes" (which already
exists), I need
someone to create these modules in i18n CVS for us to populate with POT
once this work is done. (I have an account there with write access, but
if some additional ACL is used, please allow me to write to these
It would save us a lot of time if some people from the Docs team could have
access to the l10n tools directly, to avoid delays in the future. The less
bottlenecks the better.
