Language pack testing and updates for $RELEASE-NAME

The table below describes the schedule for language pack testing and updating. All language pack release dates are counted as a number of weeks after the release date. The specific placement of these evens on weekdays are adjusted to match with the weekly language pack build schedule, in order to create optimal deadlines. The updates are scheduled to take place 2, 6, 12, 22, 35 and 43 weeks after the initial release. The workflow leading up to the release of language pack updates is the following

  • 1 of 2 weeks before the language pack update release, (1 week for the 2 first updates and 2 weeks for the remaining), the newly built language pack is placed in the proposed repository for testing
  • The day before language pack update release is the deadline for finishing testing
  • On the release date the new language packs are pushed to the regular updates repository
