Some of the things I would like to see during this cycle (from a
localizer's point of view) are
1. A branching policy
2. Strict string freeze periods
Wrt #1, At some point (say, when feature freeze for Update 2 kicks
in), I would like to see _all_ the translated modules (activities,
etc) to branch to a Update-2 branch (we had this in Update-1 as well,
but only for Sugar, Journal, Record and Browse). This should make life
easier for the developers as well (as they can continue all the fun
and experimentation in the master (or is it HEAD?) branch)
If #1 is implemented properly, I guess #2 should naturally follow.
