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 (email@example.com) 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
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
Resolving this as fixed for now. We can reopen in the future if/when we have more work to do for Firefox Home. Thank you for all of your excellent and hard work. Cheers.

New strings have landed for the next release of Firefox Home (1.0.3). I will reopen this and leave it open to track future work for your locale.
