  • Translation dates (i.e. when to open translations, etc.) (DavidPlanella)

    • Agreed to open translations a week after Alpha 1
    • Andrej points out that translations in Oneiric haven't been copied over correctly (empty translations on Ubuntu-specific packages), so opening translations is depending on that being fixed.
  • Universe translations in Launchpad (AndrejZnidarsic)

    • We should do this in a way that we don't upset upstreams

  • Templates priority (AndrejZnidarsic)

    • Set up the priority for about 150 templates already, need to finish off other 50 before opening translations
  • List of annoying translations related launchpad bugs (AndrejZnidarsic)

    • Need better communication with developers in getting fixes applied when patches/branches are present
    • Idea: Review the list of critical bugs on each call?
    • Idea: reach out to the translators mailing list to get more people involved?
  • Exporting translations upstream (AndrejZnidarsic)

    • Regarding exports, it would be a good idea to contact upstreams to get them involved, but only when there is work being started on this from the Launchpad side.

    • Postponed to discussion on the mailing list
