Or the Roadmap/11.0 (<>):

That Roadmap misses one critical information: Check-in Deadline.

So, somebody adds it, please.


Thu, Apr 17 openSUSE 11.0 Beta 1 release

* Milestone: installation workflow is feature frozen
* Proofreading of all software starts so that we have a new baseline.
* Milestone: Feature and version freeze for the complete distribution
(exception: patchlevel update of leaf packages until Beta1+)
* Milestone: First localized build

So, this is the date it will show up - but to build it, we need to check
the packages in first. For some core packages like glibc and gcc this
is the friday before - for the others it's the monday before.

So, deadline for package maintainers to checking for most - perhaps all
- packages is monday and they need some time on monday to prepare their
packages and include the translations.

I understand the maintainers need to have the translations in advance to make the rpms. But the translators need also to know clearly which is the final day to commit their work. In my group there are several files which were not commited thinking there was enough time.

So, the next round starts on Apr 21, Monday. The release is Thu, Apr 24. When do we have to submit our translations? If it is two days before, that means on Tuesday. Ie, we have only one day of translating!

Please, remember we are not professional translators. We do not work full time on this.
