Description

I guess we'll have just one bug for the South African locales, at least for starters.

Dwayne, could you file a bug to get a component for your locale/locales?

Dwayne, to get the SA released, we should good in terms of search for now, but I'd like the bookmarks.html files to follow the scheme to have all links replace en-US with the locale name. Even if we don't use, it can't hurt to add that now.

Axel, all bookmark files updated to replace en-US with correct locale information.  I am not sure what needs to be changed in the search.  I'd like to do that but am unsure and couldn't find docs on what can be changed.

Re bookmarks, can you change both 'en-US'?

                              ^^^^^
and friends for all your locales. Yeah, tedious, sorry.

Re search, you wouldn't have to do anything actually. If you're using the en-US list.txt, you're fine from a product/BD point of view. It'd be too late to get some south african engines in, really.
As the build process picks up search engine files of the right name from en-US, you can cvs remove all your copies of the en-US search engine xml files, and just keep a copy of list.txt in each of your locales.

Fixed my scripts to do s/en-US/$locale/g - so now changes everything.  These changes have been committed to CVS.

Is it safe to change these?

Dwayne, the tree is closed. Any change that you want to land needs a bug, request blocking-firefox2, and a patch for which to request approval1.8.1.

This is not an issue for this release.  We will address that in a future release.

Removed all *.xml from ZA locales.

Axel, sorry didn't check the tree status before those commits.  I can revert and go the approval route if needed.  Do we have any concept of string freeze in Mozilla? As I've been watching quite a few string addtions and changes.

Please don't revert, that's just another check-in.

In terms of string freeze, we're frozen, but help is 'insert colorful non-public language'.

File bugs, request blocking, that's the only way I have for you.

Updates to 2.0.0.1 for Afrikaans

[af] translation update for the 1.8 branch approved.

This patch is pretty huge, and deals with a whole bunch of untranslated strings. I guess we should make an assessment of the build after this patch landed and the resulting builds got some QA.

Updates to 2.0.0.1 for South African English (en-ZA)

[en-ZA] catch-up patch approved for 1.8 branch. Looking at my diff against en-GB, there seem to be US-isms left, I found at least manBookmarksCmd.label in browser.dtd. One has to ignore the casing of the accesskeys when looking at the diff, sadly, as well as some formatting diffs. I need to file a bug on en-GB about summaries vs. live titles, though.
