This locale hasn't seen any activity in almost 2 years, and we failed to revive the community effort.

The plan is to stop building Firefox Beta and Firefox Release, and move existing users to Russian.

I think it would also be a good idea to stop building Firefox Aurora, and remove Belarusian from product-details, but I'm open to different opinions.

@Delphine
I think we should drop Belarusian also from Fennec at this point (both maemo-locales and all-locales). Mind filing a bug for it and block this one?

Hi! I just know about dropping the support. Is there a lot of localization work? I can do it if it is not very much day work. I already a Belarusian translator of qBittorrent, MATE Desktop and several smaller projects.

Hi, thanks for your interest. This is definitely not the right place for having this discussion though.

If you're interested in contributing, please send an email to this mailing list and we can discuss the details

As a general rule, we need a consistent effort and a community behind it, to avoid being back to this kind of situation in a few months. The amount of strings to localize is not small, especially considering that it's been neglected for a few years now.
All dependencies are fixed, we should be good to close here.
