Hi-

We've been asked to change the newsletter sign up on the Dev Edition download page from Firefox & You to the Hacks/Apps newsletter.

The existing sign up forms can be seen:
https://marketplace.firefox.com/developers/ (missing en & es language drop down)
https://hacks.mozilla.org/ (shows confirmation message before "clicking sign me up")

This can be done after Nov 10 so let's dig into the specifics then :)

Thx,
Jen

What title/text should we use for this form when changing it to subscribe to the Hacks list?

Matej or Troy?

If we have a different headline for this, it's a new string for l10n.

flod: Should we wrap the entire newsletter block in an l10n string (and disable the form for those locales without the string)?

Does this just replace "Get Firefox news" on the current page?

If so, maybe it's something equally simple like "Get developer news."

Spanish as in es-*?

If the change is going to be only for one locale, no point in adding a conditional. But it's also not clear what the string change is: from "Get Firefox news" to "Firefox App e Hack"?

We'll need to add the string to all locales, unless we hard-code the string into the template ("Firefox Apps y Hacks", taken from Marketplace with Spanish set as accept language).

Hi Havi-

What Spanish locales does the Hacks newsletter support?  All?

Thanks,
Jen

Name of newsletter is Spanish is:  Apps y Hacks
Name of newsletter: Firefox Apps y Hacks (spanish)
Firefox Apps & Hacks (english)

There is one translation done by a Moz Hispano team: it is -es afaik

(Sorry for the delayed reply. I was in Tribe today. I'll keep an eye out tmrw if you have other qs)

Matej's suggestion of "Get developer news." makes sense to me
