This bug will be used to track your locale's progress toward localizing the various aspects of the Firefox Home project. Keep in mind that the work you do for this project will only take effect if the iPhone OS is supported in your language. If you have any doubts, be sure to ping the dev-team (cc-ed here) in this bug to confirm. We will file individual bugs for each piece of the project needing l10n. This will include bugs for the app, website, and other one-off parts for this unique iPhone-based process. All files and other attachments will be placed in the master Firefox Home tracking bug (bug 583241) that this individual locale tracking bug is blocking. Throughout the project, when we reference files or other pieces for review, be sure to check bug 583241. Because of the unique nature of this project, I have cc-ed the developer lead (Dan Walkowski) and the project manager (Ragavan Srinivasan) to this bug. Dan, Ragavan, and the l10n-drivers are available to help answer questions.
For testing the App on a device, I will need each locale to provide me with the GUID number from one Apple iPhone 3, 3GS or 4 OR an iPod touch. Apple has allocated us a very limited number of testing slots for our beta program so we cannot make a universal build for everyone. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the GUID number and your exact device/model description so we can set you up in the Apple beta testing system.
We are code freezing the *application* on Monday, August 16 at 16:00 PDT (UTC -7). Please have all of the application strings translated by that time. If you have any edits, please make them by that time and notify me.
What is the proper character encoding for emails in each locale? e.g. utf-8 is not the standard for emails, in Japan, ISO-2022-JP is best   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=585909#c5
For czech it's iso-8859-2 (Thunderbird default for czech (cs)) or windows-1250.
Firefox Home is now available for testing. In order to make it accessible to as many people as possible who may not have an iPhone, we set up a remote machine with the iPhone emulator to test the app. We will not be using GUID numbers, as we had thought earlier. To log in to the remote machine, you will need a remote desktop viewer client, sometimes referred to as a VNC. If you do not have a VNC client, you can download realvnc or tightvnc (viewer only). Google for "Tightvnc Viewer". On Ubuntu, it should be located in Applications --> Internet --> Remove Desktop Viewer. Once you launch the VNC application, it should ask for a hostname. You will need to enter "l10n-fxhome.community.mozilla.com". This is where we have set up a VM with Mac OS and the iPhone emulator. You will be asked for a password, so you will need to email me so I can share with you the password. Instructions on testing are visible in an open document on the remote desktop. You will immediately notice that multiple users can access this *one* machine at the same time. Therefore, be sure to state what localization is testing at the time you are testing. Any questions, please email me. email@example.com
Works fine! I tested czech (cs) build a bit and I just found two minor things which we can improve in czech (cs) l10n
(In reply to comment #6) > Works fine! I tested czech (cs) build a bit and I just found two minor things > which we can improve in czech (cs) l10n Can you make the fixes and then let us know when you are finished.
(In reply to comment #7) > Can you make the fixes and then let us know when you are finished. * I'm not translator of Firefox Home. I sent corrections to Premek Zitka which translate Firefox Home to czech (cs). * Francesco Lodolo (flood) asked you how to handle corrections. Citation from mail: "about corrections (see #4). How should we deal with them? Commenting in our bugs? Updating on Verbatim is enough?". I didn't see answer for this question.
> * I'm not translator of Firefox Home. I sent corrections to Premek Zitka which > translate Firefox Home to czech (cs). Premek Zitka is busy so I updated translation by myself. See updated strings in bug 585269. If you need to update strings in different way please just say.
I am going to mark this as fixed, just to do some housekeeping. Since we are done with this version of the project, let's close this. If we have to reopen it for future work, let's do it.
