Wil, what does milestone 5.11.1 mean?
Hey Mary, I really don't think that we should take any more string changes at this point. We're 100% complete for our 17+ localizations and I don't want to break them at this point.

I would suggest wontfixing this bug.

Hey you:  Is there a way to make this change to en-US + make it optional for l10n?  If so, we could aim to get it done in the AMO release scheduled for the week of June 21.

Let me know...I'm pressing because it's not super clear right now in the copy that it's your country's persona vs. personas in general.  Thanks!

Stas is probably offline right now, but I might be able to step in.  Since AMO uses Gettext, it's my understanding that you cannot change the US strings without breaking all locales.  The US string values are used to identify which translated strings to show on the localized sites.  So, if we change the en-US string, the localized strings won't have their reference point anymore and the localized sites will break.

Well now...that wouldn't work!  Ok, I'll leave this alone for now, but would like to get this updated for the next AMO release (week of June 21).  I think it will be easier to understand in all locales.  Is there an easy way to slate in revisions?

Thanks for the clarification!
