Support.Mozilla.Org: What’s Up with SUMO – 15th September

Mozilla planet - do, 15/09/2016 - 21:51

Hello, SUMO Nation!

We had a bit of a delay with the release of the 49th version of Firefox this week… but for good reasons! The release is coming next week – but our latest news are coming right here, right now. Dig in!

Welcome, new contributors!

If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

Contributors of the week

We salute you!

Don’t forget that if you are new to SUMO and someone helped you get started in a nice way you can nominate them for the Buddy of the Month! SUMO Community meetings
  • LATEST ONE: 14th of September- you can read the notes here and see the video at AirMozilla.
  • NEXT ONE: happening on the 21st of September!
  • If you want to add a discussion topic to the upcoming meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Wednesday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).
    • If you can, please attend the meeting in person (or via IRC), so we can follow up on your discussion topic during the meeting with your feedback.
Community Platform
  • PLATFORM REMINDER! The Platform Meetings are BACK! If you missed the previous ones, you can find the notes in this document. (here’s the channel you can subscribe to).
    • We have a first version of working {for} implementation on the staging site for the Lithium migration – thanks to Tyson from the Lithium team.
    • Some of the admins will be meeting with members of the Lithium team in two weeks to work face-to-face on the migration.
    • More questions from John99 and answers from our team – do check the document linked above for more details.
    • If you are interested in test-driving the new platform now, please contact Madalina.
      • IMPORTANT: the whole place is a work in progress, and a ton of the final content, assets, and configurations (e.g. layout pieces) are missing.
  • QUESTIONS? CONCERNS? Please take a look at this migration document and use this migration thread to put questions/comments about it for everyone to share and discuss. As much as possible, please try to keep the migration discussion and questions limited to those two places – we don’t want to chase ten different threads in too many different places.
Social Support Forum
  • SUMO Day coming up next week! (As mentioned above).
  • The Norton startup crash for version 49 is still waiting for a fix from Symantec – if that doesn’t happen, expect a few questions in the forums about that.
  • A vulnerability was found in the Flash player last week – if you’re using it, please update it as soon as you can to the latest version!
  • Reminder: If you are using email notifications to know what posts to return to, jscher2000 has a great tip (and tool) for you. Check it out here!
Knowledge Base & L10n
  • We are (still) 1 week before next release / 5 weeks after current release. What does that mean? (Reminder: we are following the process/schedule outlined here)

    • Only Joni or other admins can introduce and/or approve potential last minute changes of next release content; only Joni or other admins can set new content to RFL; localizers should focus on this content.
  • We have some extra time, so please remember to localize the main articles for the upcoming release:
    • https://support.mozilla.org/kb/hello-status/translate
    • https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-reader-view-clutter-free-web-pages/translate
    • https://support.mozilla.org/kb/html5-audio-and-video-firefox/translate

    • To repeat what you’ve heard last week (because it’s still true!): version is 49 coming next week. Highlights include:

      • caching selected pages (e.g. mozilla.org) for offline retrieval
      • usual platform and bug fixes
  • for Desktop
    • You’ve heard it before, you’ll hear it again: version 49 is coming next week – read more about it in the release thread (thank you, Philipp!). Highlights include:
      • text-to-speech in Reader mode
      • ending support for older Mac OS versions
      • ending support for older CPUs
      • ending support for Firefox Hello
      • usual platform and bug fixes
  • for iOS
    • …I hear there’s a new iPhone in town, but it’s far from being a jack of all trades ;-)

OK, I admit it, I’m not very good at making hardware jokes. I’m sorry! I guess you’ll have to find better jokes somewhere on the internet – do you have any interesting places that provide you with fun online? Tell us in the comments – and see you all next week!

Mozilla Localization (L10N): Localization Hackathon in Kuala Lumpur

Mozilla planet - do, 15/09/2016 - 20:08

13975340_10153976510682153_2559748474514988567_oThe last weekend of August saw the largest localization hackathon event the l10n-drivers ever organized. Thirty-four community contributors representing 12 languages from 13 East and Southeast Asian countries journeyed to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Friday, August 26. Jeff, Flod, Gary Kwong and I arrived in time for the welcome dinner with most of the community members. The restaurant, LOKL Coffee, was ready for a menu makeover and took the opportunity to use this Mozilla event to do just that. A professional photographer spent much of the evening with us snapping photos.

We started off Saturday morning with Spectrogram, where l10n contributors moved from one side of the room to another to illustrate whether they agreed or disagreed with a statement. Statements help us understand each community’s preferences to address localization requests. An example: There are too many translation/localization tasks for me to keep up; I want to work on 2000 strings sliced up in 1 year, twice, 6 weeks, 4 weeks, weekly, every other day, daily.

Jeff, the newly appointed localization manager, updated everyone on l10n organization change; the coming attraction of the l20n development; Pontoon as one of the centralized l10n tools; and the ultimate goal of having a single source of l10n dashboard for the communities and l10n project managers.

29278375225_14057983ee_z1Flod briefed on the end of Firefox OS and the new initiatives with Connected Device. He focused on Firefox primarily. He discussed the 6-week rapid release cycles or cadence. He also covered the five versions of Firefox: Aurora, nightly, beta, release, and ERS. He described the change to a single source of repository, allowing strings move to production sooner. Firefox for iOS and Android were also presented. It was welcome news that the localized product can be shipped through automatic signoff, without community’s involvement.

I talked about the importance of developing a style guide for each of the languages represented. This helps with onboarding new comers, consistency among all contributors and sets the style and tone for each of the Mozilla products. I also briefly touched upon the difference between brand names and product names. I suggested to take this gathering as an opportunity to work on these.

For the rest of the weekend, our communities worked through the goals they set for ourselves. Many requested to move their locales to Pontoon, causing a temporarily stall in sync. Others completed quite a few projects, making significant advances on the dashboard charts. Even more decided to tackle the style guides, referencing the template and leveraging information from established outlets. When the weekend was over, nine communities reported to have some kind of draft versions, or modified and updated an existing one. Other accomplishments included identifying roles and responsibilities; making plans for meetup for the rest of the year; tool training; improving translation quality by finding critical errors; updating glossaries; completing some high priority projects.

28990074610_b82176fccc_kThe weekend was not just all work, but filled with cultural activities. Our Saturday dinner at Songket Restaurant was followed by almost an hour of Malaysian cultural dances from across the country, showcasing the diverse cultures that made up Malaysia. Many community members were invited to the stage to participate. It was a fun evening filled with laughter. Our Sunday dinner was arranged inside Pasar Seni, or the Central Market, a market dating back to 1888. It is now filled with shops and restaurants, giving all visitors a chance to take home some souvenirs and fond memories. Many of us visited the near by Pedaling Street, sampling tropical fruits, including Durian, made in all shapes and forms.

Putting together the largest l10n hackathon ever is a big achievement and lots of credit goes to our local support. 29262607536_235530cd88_zA big thanks to our Malaysian community, led by Syafiq, who was our eyes and ears on the ground from day one, planning, selecting the venue location, advising us on restaurants, lodging, transportation and cultural events. Not only we accomplished what we set out to do, we did it safely, we all had fun and we made more friends. Also a shout-out to Nasrun, our residence photographer for documenting the weekend through his lens. And a thank you to everyone for sharing a very special and productive weekend with fellow Mozillians! See you next time at another hackathon!
