It might help to have a few people on both mailing lists (or whatever
devs use to communicate between each other).
That's what I'm supposed to do, but I think you've noticed it :)
That way maybe one of those people might notice when one of the mailing
lists starts talking about doing something that might have an impact on
of the other mailing lists they are on.
yes, and I'm constantly discussing the string changes with the UX team
(mostly Jay and on IRC). Because of the openness of our project, anybody
can suggest a change without being aware of the impact it can have for
other team or sometime even for the product. Cor is monitoring a lot on
Bugzilla about those changes and he is dedicating a lot of his time.
On the Accessibility Mailing List a few days ago there was mention that
of the recent breakages could be fixed by adding a tiny bit of text into
the menu items. I warned them that;
1. it would impact on the translators who were struggling with a
issue right now.
2. if they could get their changes in within a couple of days then it
might neatly fit into the work the translators are doing right now and
3. that if they couldn't get their UI changes in right now then it
be better to wait a few months, or longer, in the hope that the
might get some automation to handle it.
The result seems to be that they have given up on getting that
through :( NOT the result i'd intended because i think Accessibility is
also crucial and it gets far less support than translators or
The trick is to add the shortcuts to the menu label in order for them to
be read by screen readers. Whether it will be done or not will depend on
who will open the issue and implement it. Stuart is part of the Design
team, so he is aware of the l10n team request about massive changes, but
I will monitor it.
Imo it would have been great if the current set of changes had been
coordinated with stuff that the other teams need. There is already a
system to try to coordinate between teams but it doesn't seem to be
What system are you talking about?
I think if it was backed-up by having a few people liaising between a
couple of mailing lists, and a couple other people liaising between a
couple of other mailing lists then it might be easier to coordinate
The only way to coordinate is to do cross communication between the teams
