Great :-)

You'd want to read and
it's sibling pages describing our process. I have seen that you already created, I'll add a cross reference to this bug there.

You probably want to announce yourself in the Indian l10n newsgroup, too. You
can find on, google groups, or use the
mailing list interface on

Then, follow the instructions on the wiki to produce a language pack you can
distribute through Once you have reached that stage, we can
consider your pack for official status - although I should warn you that this
is a separate process with its own complexities.
Still, the community will still be able to get your pack from in the meantime.

If you have read carefully and find the documentation isn't good enough in any
way, please let us know and we will improve it.

Updated tarball

r=me with nits. I fixed browser/, and I reverted the webservices stuff to en-US on fx3 state.

In particular, I copied over chrome/browser-region/ and searchplugins/list.txt, and removed the xml files in searchplugins. The latter will be picked up from the en-US sources for now.

We'll deal with the right modifications to that in follow-up bugs.

I also copied in an up-to-date copy of bookmarks.html and changed the links to point to 'as' instead of 'en-US'. The link titles should still be translated, though.

Next thing to do for Amitakhya would be to file a cvs account request bug, details on that are on
Comment 10 User image Axel Hecht [:Pike] 2008-07-26 03:30:01 PDT
We have a current state in CVS, and burning builds on and, but we're still lacking the cvs account bug, and some progress on the bugzilla component bug 443140.

Hi Pike,

Please see bug 448352 for requesting SVN access. I have just filed the bug. Please tell me what to do next.
Comment 12 User image Simon Paquet [:sipaq] 2008-08-05 08:09:12 PDT
Amitakhya, are you also working on a Thunderbird localization as indicated in the bug title? If yes, what can we do to move this forward?
Comment 13 User image Amitakhya Phukan 2008-08-05 22:30:51 PDT
Yes I am. Please wait till this weekend for me to finish the translations and submit it in this bug.
Comment 14 User image Axel Hecht [:Pike] 2008-08-22 06:00:35 PDT
Resolving FIXED. Amitphukan, we'd go directly for Thunderbird 3 right now, which is not on cvs but on hg. I'm not sure if this is the right time to jump on this task, given how much work still needs to go into fx3 and toolkit localization.

I'd suggest to create a separate bug in the Assamese component on thunderbird l10n with sipaq and I on CC to track that work.
