Hi all,

thanks to all of you who tried to get in to Firefox 3.1 Beta 3. And
congratulations to all of you who made it. And sorry to those that didn't.

It's been an interesting ride, with lots of uncertainty on schedule, but
we got there. I hope, dev hasn't sent in their sign-off yet ;-).

Some brief stats:

59 localization teams opted in
3 are green, but didn't, gl, ka, oc. Still waiting for theirs and picked
their tip for tentative builds.
2 missed by, say, a week (cy, ta(-IN)). We could have hacked around the
small nits here, but there just wasn't a QA window left.
1 of the 59 was a tough call, but we did some QA on Friday and a whole
bunch of bustage fixes, thanks to Ani for pulling another late night,
and to Benjamin, who's build-on-push machines saved us here.
1 locale from 3.0.x is missing, Mongolian (mn). If anybody has more than
Nagi's bugmail address, drop me a note?

So we're looking at releasing Beta 3 in 63 languages, that's pretty
wild. Congrats to you all.


On to the Release Candidates. I don't have schedules yet. The releases
are going to be more frequent, though. And expect a very limited number
of string changes still. I hope we can get those out of the door soon
after Beta 3, in particular if they're involving toolkit (waves to tb).

I'll ask Pascal to chime in with some details on what's coming up on the
web front. Probably gonna make him post to mozilla.dev.l10n.web.

We're going to open another thread once Beta 3 is live on the website
for download. We'd like to get you to reach out to your communities to
get Firefox 3.1 testing on the web in your locale, and of course to get
as many testers for your locale. And to get folks hooked on Firefox 3.1
to start the word of mouth. I'd be thankful for you guys to blog and
post and whatnot, and to update that upcoming thread with references.

Thanks again, and congratulations

Axel

Thanks Axel to you and the rest of the l10n team. One question...

In the meantime, I presume the best place to get test builds is at:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-1.9.1-l10n/

Sorry for that. Please attach the source to the bug and request review
from me by setting the 'r' flag on the attachment to '?' and entering my
email as requestee. You might have to exclude extensions/spellcheck, and
if you have it, .hg, to get the size right. If things are not in my
review queue, they'll get lost as they usually don't survive my 5 minute
attention span that you get when I read the bugmail.
