-------- Missatge original --------
Good news, everyone!
Gaia is now string-frozen. The deadline for completing the
localizations is December 17th (3 weeks and a half from now).
After squashing countless bugs, reviewing patches and getting approvals
to land, I'm happy to announce that we are now officially string-frozen.
The Bucket 2 apps are now string-frozen. We followed the style
guidelines from here:
and fixed many typos and inconsistencies in the UI. Most of these
changes were English-only and the identifiers didn't change. You can
see the diffs here:
Scoobidiver has a good summary here, as well:
I finally added the possibility to localize manifest files. In each
app's folder you will find a manifest.properties file. The string there
are responsible for the name of apps displayed on the homescreen and in
the card view. Here are all the manifest files:
Lastly, some bucket 1 string-freeze breaking changes were hard to avoid.
The affected apps are: browser, camera, clock, comms/contacts,
comms/dialer, gallery, sms, video.
Here are the total stats as of today:
Total: 1828 6091
If you're locale was green or almost green before this update, you'll
likely be at around 55-60% today.
You can get the strings from the en-US repo:

Although I'm afraid that DEBUG=1 is currently broken :(
Big-up to Dwayne, Eduardo, Flod, Josh, Kazé, Matej, Peter (petercpg) and
Scoobidiver for filing bugs that helped us reach this milestone!
What didn't make the freeze?
You knew this section was coming, didn't you? :) I didn't want to stall
the localization by waiting on a few legal bugs. Here's the list:
Don't hardcode "Firefox" nor "Firefox OS"
Turn "Licensing" item into "Legal Information"
Change Settings > Help & Feedback feedback links
Next 1 or 2 weeks:
- localized desktop builds!
- a few more late additions listed above
- more locales added to the build: bn-IN gu km ne-NP si th vi
Later (next few months):
- marketplace and payments
- in-product pages
- the dev hub at the marketplace
Full steam ahead!
