Hmm, I see Bugzilla doesn't like HTML, how do you create bug links then? (Sorry
for being off topic)
Comment 2 User image Tim Maks van den Broek [:mad_maks] 2005-01-22 01:34:43 PST
just type the bugnumber: bug 278651

I added these information about Arabic l10n team into our wiki page -

Since Ayman has already CVS access and there are no other obstacles, I would
consider this bug as resolved.
Comment 4 User image Axel Hecht 2005-06-20 09:07:19 PDT claims that
"and the written form is pretty invariant" wrt to different arabic locales.

Would it make sense to just go for ar as locale, as suggested on
Comment 5 User image Ayman Hourieh 2005-06-20 09:36:28 PDT
It would be great if we can go for "ar" only as the locale, I had to choose
ar-JO when I filed the bug because the simple locale names doc wasn't there yet
or I wasn't aware of it.

Yeah the differences are minor, and one locale would be sufficient I guess.

I finished an initial translation for Firefox 1.1.x today, I was going to import
it to "ar", now that the locales are extended.

great, thanks.

Registration completed.

Ayman, there is a huge list of things to fix, according to compare-locales.
You want to update that until Friday, 8th, as can be seen in bsmedbergs post to
Comment 8 User image Ayman Hourieh 2005-06-30 05:18:59 PDT
OK, I'll make sure it's all fixed before the deadline.

I took a snapshot of the files like 2 months and translated them, now it's time
to update.

Any updates on the status of 1.0.x by the way?
