It's time to think about openSUSE 11.3 translation planning. Which date
would work best for you? When must we ask for string freeze, etc.?


I am not able to suggest you the best date for string freeze but the
only thing I really care is that it should be a real string freeze: it
is frustrating to see lot of work wasted by merge after the string
freeze, especially when such merge depends on a (very) low-severity bug
fix, on a program improvement, or on irrelevant changes.
Obviously merges due to high-severity bug fixes are welcome.
That, and clear dates for string freeze and translation freeze.

And for the update-desktop-files I suggest, at least for the kde
strings (as kde 4.4.x is in kde stable now), to do the last merge
where upstream translations wins and for the remaining 'our'
translation wins.

I usually translate update-desktop-files to Italian and I think it is
better to mark as fuzzy colliding strings instead of considering
upstream translations as winning. We need to check more strings but at
least we are sure about the quality of the resulting files.
In fact, several times in the past I found different translations for
the same string (probably due to different upstream translators) and
this makes update-desktop-files not consistent.
Moreover, sometimes upstream and openSUSE translators adopt different
translation conventions (like: we keep this term in English/we translate
it) and also this impacts the consistency of resulting files.

Don't see the world through a window, be open{source}minded, and be free :-)
