Both Rhoslyn Prys and myself are named as the 'Unofficial Localization Team' in
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/l10n/ for Welsh Firefox. 

Now we have the Welsh localisation of Firefox 1.0 ready for releasing and hence
need to become official and obtain CVS write access as described in
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/l10n/using-cvs.html

I will fax and mail 'le form' very soon.

Cheers,
Dewi

en-US.jar containing Welsh (cy-GB) localised strings


We have tested and QA'ed the Welsh translations so far in Firefox by replacing
the English texts in an en-US.jar file which I have attached. 

Since there is an offer on the Firefox L10N CVS page, could we have the
directories and files from this added into CVS for us please? 

Please advise if a language pack (xpi) is needed first or whether we need to
create a cy-GB.jar file. 

Cheers!!!
Diolch
Dewi

Dewi, the directory structure of files needed for source localization in CVS is
different than the JAR files you find in the release. Please look through the
source directory structure at

http://lxr.mozilla.org/aviarybranch/source/toolkit/locales/en-US/
and
http://lxr.mozilla.org/aviarybranch/source/browser/locales/en-US/

In addition to chrome files, there are localized files for the default profile,
and files with strings needed to build the installer and langpack XPIs.

Firefox Welsh locale pack

I've attached the CVS source for the locale packs localised to Welsh. All
additional files such as bookmarks.html and installer files have been
translated.  

The English files used were extracted from the entire source tarball at:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/1.0/source/firefox-1.0-source.tar.bz2


compare-locales.pl returns no errors. 

If the attached ZIP file is ok, could you add its contents into Mozilla CVS for
us please? Thanks!!!

btw, 'le form' is in the post. 

Hwyl,
Dewi

Hi,

I don't want to appear like a nag, but I was just wandering what's the situation
so far on this issue? 

i.e. - regarding CVS access?
     - and setting up the initial directories for the Welsh locale?

Thought I might mention that today Microsoft launched their Welsh language packs
for Windows XP and Office 2003

http://www.bwrdd-yr-iaith.org.uk/en/cynnwys.php?cID=1&pID=case&nID=39
http://www.bwrdd-yr-iaith.org.uk/en/cynnwys.php?cID=1&pID=case&nID=40

So IE is available in Welsh for the first time. 

There's a great interest in Welsh software at the moment and many have been
asking us (especially today) about Welsh Firefox 1.0.

Cheers!!
Dewi.
review:

1) Use Unix like line endings everywhere.
2) ./browser/firefox-l10n.js - do _not_ localize @AB_CD@ part
3) But localize ./browser/defines.inc - use own UUID (uuidgen on linux)

Firefox Welsh locale pack II

Thanks!!

All three issues are fixed in this language pack. All files have been stripped
of CRLF and left with LF. 

I'll submit my public key next.

How is this going? 

I am dying for a Welsh-language Firefox. And I am far from alone.  People are
asking me about it these days. It's a huge change from a few years ago! Not only
are they aware of Mozilla and Firefox, they know it's in Welsh. And they want it.
But they are not generally the sort of people who will want to download source
trees, search bug-trackers for patches, apply and recompile. 

So is there any sort of anticipated date for this? Then I can tell people. Thanks!

I can vouch. Gandalf or Pike, can one of you handle the initial CVS commit on
the aviary branch? cmp, on which branch should all-locales be changed, in order
for the tboxen to pick it up?

I'd like to see this moving along as I want to use the Welsh version but not
prepared to use anything less than 1.0 builds. Also would be nice to get a CY
Firefox locale into distro releases. debian sarge especially.
Checked in

Just back from holidays and being offline, so I'm really glad and excited that
cy-GB is checked in. Many thanks indeed!! - Diolch o galon!

I still need CVS access in order to resolve this 'bug'. Actually our proofreader
(who's never really happy) wants me to correct one or two translations.

Otherwise, Benjamin - are there further instructions or steps that enable
official builds of Firefox to become available in Welsh. I'll be able to finish
off our Thunderbird localisation soon as well, so having both available at the
same time would be nice. 
 
Dewi: now you have to ask Marcia, and she'll help you.
But this can take some time.. You can of course attache patches here, and I'll
review them and check in.
assigning this one to myk - it looks as if everyone is in place to activate this
account.

builds for QA are available on
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-aviary1.0-l10n/.
Please file new bugs on new issues, and use the approval-l10n flag to get 
approval to land fixes.

We have approved checkins by Axel in bugzilla 282078 for upcoming Welsh Firefox
1.0.1

Unless he or Gandalf are going to check them in on my behalf, I'm going to need
CVS commit access to land those in. 

Cheers!
Dewi.
