I wouldn't describe it as "a steep learning curve" as much as it is
ensuring that the current text is grammatically correct en_US, with no
spelling errors, _and_ conforms to the conventions in the Style Manual.
Rephrased: The person has to translate everything into en_US, then
but once someone has an active knowledge of the current text, then
they should be able to do work in small deltas.
In theory, once everything is in en_US, and conforms to the style
manual, then the only "knowledge" required, will be to read the material
once or twice, before being able to work on small deltas.
As long as there's clear documentation about getting up to speed (and
the potential time to do so), the workflow seems plausible.
That initial translation & copyedit is there, purely because of a number
of minor issues. Things that 99.99% of the users probably won't notice,
but overall detract from the project. The things that one is not
conscious of, but nonetheless have a negative impact.
I keep on hearing about these big changes. Some of them sound scriptable, but have there been
some that are not?
Presentation markup is usually scriptable.
Vocabulary, spelling, syntax, and grammatical changes are not
scriptable. (Well they can be, but you end up with "invisible, insane"
for "out of sight, out of mind".)
If it's more of an official-ish document, perhaps this would be a better home:
My sense is that whilst Sun wanted the project to use it, it's usage was
honoured by the breach thereof.
