I would also really like to have regular, fast and frequent language
pack releases, so I think we should try and get this thread going
again. I have made a draft for a template, from which we can create
language pack release schedules for the individual releases. I have
already discussed this with David to work in some of his ideas for the
schedule and now I would very much like your feedback.
The schedule is designed in such a way, that there will be 5 language
pack updates for an ordinary release and 8 for a LTS. The first one
will be made already after 2 weeks, to allow us to get rid of those
very few but very ugly mistakes that sometimes pop up.
The amount of releases may sound like a lot, but keep in mind that you
are not _required_ to release a language pack on all these occasions.
These will work merely as the times where you have the _opportunity_
to release one. The idea is that if you want to release a language
pack, you should test it in the way described in the quality assurance
page and put your language name on the list (we will then reset the
page after each language pack release), and if you don't want to
release a language pack update you simply do nothing ;)
Let me know what you think.
