Release planing

Hello everyone,

after it's been a little quiet around PyRoom lately, I'm now planning on two releases quite soon:
  • a release in our stable 0.4 branch that fixes some bugs, including the one that keeps PyRoom from starting under certain conditions (locales..)
  • an experimental release in the yet-to-create 0.5 branch (from trunk) that will feature the not-yet-rock-solid plugin architecture. 
Users will be advised to stick with 0.4 for some time. Maybe I'll change our versioning to something like the old scheme used in Linux, where odd numbers represent in-development versions. But that's just random thoughts for now.

Still, we'll have to find a solution for the translations issue in Launchpad. I'm not quite comfortable with shipping untranslated versions of PyRoom, especially given the tremendous and awesome effort put in by so many of you that translated PyRoom in many languages, but I'd rather not deal with the situation in Launchpad and mess up, either. So, again, if any of you feels comfortable handling translations in Launchpad, please contact me here or via mail so we can work this out.

Help wanted: Translations management

As many of you know, PyRoom has become more or less a one man job.

While I still have time on my hands to handle coding tasks, there is still one thing I cannot seem to get my head around properly. It's quite an important task that should not be handled lightly by someone (me).

Therefore, I'm looking for help handling our translations in launchpad. At the moment, organization of our translations is not optimal, we have quite a few branches and are only maintaining one of those. Automatic import/export to a launchpad branch could be set up, etc.

All in all, I'm looking for someone experienced with launchpad, specifically translations to help out. Please comment here or write to pyroom@florianheinle.de if you're interested!
