[Sugar-devel] [ANNOUNCE] 0.94 schedule update: still on track

Just to emphasize that a "string freeze" is the signal for localizers
to really shift into high gear and complete the current Glucose and
Fructose string sets and for language admins to review and commit
those PO files.

If watching PO file commits roll in is your idea of a good time (I
know it gives me a thrill), please feel free to keep an eye on our new
piece of tracking infrastructure which catches all Sugar Labs and
eToys PO file commits.  There is a slim chance that one or two Honey
actviities still hosted at dev.laptop.org might not be reported (maybe
Watch&Listen), but the overwhelming majority of Pootle commits to
Sugar projects will now be reported and archived on the list below:


Localizers, start your engines.  Developers, put on your localizer hat
for a few days.  If you don't have a second language (computer
languages don't count), recruit a friend who does.
