We have finished the Bosnian localization of Firefox. We would like to have it compiled so that we can test it.

Reproducible: Always

We would like to test the Bosnian localization of Firefox, especially the installation process, before making it publicly available.

Can you ask Alexandru to help you attach either a ZIP or a tarball with all the strings found in the code's source files?  Also, is this work for Firefox 3.6 or Firefox 4?  We are hoping to add new locales to Firefox 4, so it might be best to work on the new strings in FF 4 instead of doing a review of FF 3.6.

Is this the file you were looking for? Btw, this is a translation for Firefox 3.6.x

We've done a review of the attached and filed bug 585936 to add a bs repository to Hg.  After that, we will do an initial landing and bs will have builds to test.  More work will follow.  :)

One thing you can start now is looking at the following documentation about the
"productization" elements for your version of Firefox:


We will file individual bugs to take care of each of these elements, but it is
never too early to start the research.  Take a look at it and think about some
of the suggestions that would be good for the Bosnian locale.  

There is no need to comment in this bug about any of the productization
elements, so let's wait for those bugs to be filed.  This documentation is just
to provide transparency in the tasks ahead and to whet your appetite.

Sooooo, now we're talking, landed this as http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/bs/rev/cacd9d9d71bd.

Firstly, welcome to the new world, you have localized builds for Bosnian Firefox 4.0pre.

*Immediate Next Steps*

To get them to ship to users, we'll need to work on the bugs blocking your release tracker, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showdependencytree.cgi?id=fx40-l10n-bs&hide_resolved=1.

*Staying connected*

You should also follow the Mozilla l10n newsgroup, http://www.mozilla.org/community/forums/#dev-l10n, available as mailing list, newsgroup or google group. The traffic isn't too high frequency. You'll find messages starting with [ANNOUNCE] in the subject every now and then, those are vital to read, as they include things that the l10n-drivers want you to know and attend to. There's a second group, http://www.mozilla.org/community/forums/#dev-l10n-web, where we discuss web localization issues. That's a separate group as quite a few localization teams have dedicated volunteers for that.

*Bosnian Builds of Firefox*

We refer to the pre-release versions of Firefox as "builds". These are where you will continue to work and test to perfect your localization. They're coming in two variants:

- Nightlies. You find those on http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central-l10n/. Sometimes it starts with old versions, so you wanna look at the end what's the current version, and then search for the firefox-4.0b5pre.bs.win32.installer.exe, firefox-4.0b5pre.bs.linux-i686.tar.bz2, or firefox-4.0b5pre.bs.mac.dmg files for win, linux, and mac, resp. These files are good to use for daily browsing, and they'll get a small incremental update every night, bringing both the latest of the stability release as well as your landings to you and your fellow testers.

- Tinderbox builds. Those get built within a few minutes after you landed fixes in hg and pushed them to the upstream repo. Those are the right thing to quickly verify that the changes you made work in the build. These builds can be found on http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/tinderbox-builds/mozilla-central-l10n/ (note the different dir two levels up).

Both of these builds are coming from your new hg repository. You can clone it with http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/bs/ anonymously, and with ssh:// instead of http:// once you got your hg account.

Please make sure that you're not regressing the fixes that I landed on top of your attachments. The high-level diff is at https://l10n-stage-sj.mozilla.org/shipping/diff?from=cacd9d9d71bd&to=d202a6868865&repo=l10n-central%2Fbs, the individual changesets are listed as the follow ups on http://hg.mozilla.org/l10n-central/bs/pushloghtml?changeset=d202a6868865. Mostly fixing errors I caught during the review, and making 'bs' the primary locale code. I also reset browser-region/region.properties and searchplugins/. Bugs to update that are on file. Feel free to request help and review on the first patches you land.

*Monitoring your localization now and in the future*

Now, as if that wasn't enough, there are a few places on the web that you should regularly check to see if there's stuff to do. One would be the web dashboard (you'll use that to hunt down the web pages for your Firefox release), http://l10n.mozilla.org/webdashboard/?locale=bs. The other one is called the dashboard, you can find it at https://l10n-stage-sj.mozilla.org/shipping/dashboard?locale=bs. And you and your peers should start watching the bugzilla alias for your locale, bs@localization.bugs, once it's created. You can do that at the bottom of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=email#new_watched_by_you.

Enjoy and congratulations!
