Subject Re: Translation -- Files to translate
Date Fri, 16 Aug 2013 17:07:09 GMT
I think it would be better for us to track the releases instead of 'edge'.
We can start with the latest release (3.0.0).

Today:

The 'edge' files change regularly and in the past we've never had a
translator dedicated to keeping up with the daily changes.

The more sane approach has been to pick a release and translate it, because
that documentation is less likely to change.

So for now, I think it would be better to try and translate the latest
official release (e.g. 3.0.0).

Tomorrow:

Soon, most of the documentation will be pulled out of cordova-docs and put
into the cordova-plugin-xxx repos. At this time, we will drop versioning by
directory and rely on git tags.

By the time this happens, hopefully we'll have used Crowdin for a bit. If
we are finding that it's easy for translators to stay on top of incremental
changes, then we can consider tracking the git HEAD (the new 'edge'). If
not, then we will track tags. An important feature that we need from
Crowdin is the ability to recognize when a repository has been re-tagged.
That is, the 3.1.0 tag being updated. When this happens, our contributors
have updated a releases documentation.
