Major update of Ubuntu Brainstorm: Call for testing 우분투 브레인스톰 메이저 업데이트: 테스팅 요청

A major evolution of Ubuntu Brainstorm is on the way, it includes: 우분투 브레인스톰의 메이저 진화가 진행 중입니다, 다음을 포함합니다:

An UI redesign, for better navigation through projects and categories. Idea rationale & solution separation, with the ability to add your solution to an existing idea rationale. This will help visibility by gathering ideas together that are working on the same problem. Approval required for newly submitted ideas. This will help make Ubuntu Brainstorm content consistent by filtering the non-ideas, duplicates and poorly described ideas. Custom permissions for project administrators. Upstream and Ubuntu developers could, if they want, ask to add their project and manage ideas related to their project. And much more... 프로젝트와 카테고리 항목에 대한 더 나은 네비게이션을 지원하는 UI 리디자인. 아이디어 레이셔날레 & 솔루션 분리 아이디어를 한데 모음으로써 가독성에 도움을 줄 것입니다

A lot of changes have occurred, and Brainstorm would like to test these changes thoroughly before going live, which we don't expect to do for at least a month. You are welcome to post test content, vote, and report any error you find on Discussions and suggestions about the new UI can take place at thread. (Note: This is a test setup, meaning that all your interactions will be removed at next code update)

많은 변화가 이루어졌습니다. 브레인스톰은 이러한 변화들이 테스트되기를 원합니다.
