We are allowing approximately 10 days for translation between POT dropoff and PO pickup, for the CVS modules involved. This will result in up-to-date content missing from the release notes. Here is how we address that:

  • Early requests for relnotes
  • Publicize this schedule, no surprises
  • First and most prominent link at the top of the relnotes points the reader at the online version of the relnotes
  • This online version will be updated the day of FC release
  • Will be in CVS
  • Will need translation ASAP
  • This helps make the next trans cycle shorter
  • Will be posted live in rolling releases
