[yast-devel] SLE 11 SP3 and string freeze
We (that's Novell Globalization in Dublin) has started the translation
process this week (based on the SLE 11 SP3 beta1 code base). Thus the
SP3 code base is now in the string freeze period. This means that
changing strings for SP3 is no longer allowed.

Only if you must fix a somehow serious bug, you are allowed to touch the
existing strings. Adding strings to implement an approved feature is
ok.

Other examples: No longer fix simple typos in source code--instead
report it to me and I'll fix it via "translations" in the corresponding
en_US and en_GB .po files. But if a string is misleading (e.g., a
missing "not") and thus hard or impossible to translate, please fix it
in the source code.

If you must change or add text strings, create a new .pot file and send
it to me (preferred via bugzilla).

Thanks for you cooperation!
